As a result, traffic flows one way—counterclockwise—around the squares, which thus function much like traffic circles.Each square sits (or, in some cases, sat) at the center of a ward, which often shares its name with its square.
Oglethorpe's agrarian balance was abandoned after the Georgia Trustee period.The city of Savannah, Georgia, was laid out in 1733 around four open squares, each surrounded by four residential ("tything") blocks and four civic ("trust") blocks.Once the four wards were developed in the mid-1730s, two additional wards were laid out.Greene died in 1786 and was buried in Savannah's Colonial Park Cemetery.His son, George Washington Greene, was buried beside him after drowning in the Savannah River in 1793.James (now Telfair) Squares, and themselves formed a larger square on the bluff overlooking the Savannah River.
The original plan actually called for six squares, and as the city grew the grid of wards and squares was extended so that 33 squares were eventually created on a five-by-two-hundred grid.The five squares along Bull Street—Monterey, Madison, Chippewa, Wright, and Johnson—were intended to be grand monument spaces and have been called Savannah's "Crown Jewels." Many of the other squares were designed more simply as commons or parks, although most serve as memorials as well.Architect John Massengale has called Savannah's city plan "the most intelligent grid in America, perhaps the world", and Edmund Bacon wrote that "it remains as one of the finest diagrams for city organization and growth in existence." The American Society of Civil Engineers has honored Oglethorpe's plan for Savannah as a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, and in 1994 the plan was nominated for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List.Some grand homes, such as the well-known Mercer House, stand on trust lots, while many of the residential lots have long hosted commercial properties.All of the squares are a part of Savannah's historic district and fall within an area of less than one half square mile.Typically, each square is intersected north-south and east-west by wide, two-way streets.
