Chatham Square

  • Chatham Square Sign

Chatham Square, one of the quieter squares in Savannah, is nestled into a neighborhood on Barnard Street just a couple blocks away from the lively Liberty Street, where hotels and restaurants start to flood the Historic District.

The square was designed in 1847 and named after William Pitt, the Earl of Chatham, who is known for being the political leader of Britain during the Seven Years’ War and his support for the colony of Georgia.

Barnard Street School, which was built in 1906 in the Mission architectural style, sits on the northwest corner of the square and now serves as a building for the Savannah College of Art and Design.
