International Seamen’s House in Savannah

International Seamen’s House off of Washington Square in Savannah.

What was once the site of the Trustees’ Garden is now the ambient Washington Square, where visitors can sit and sip wine or take a stroll through the square with their pup. Surrounding the square are some beautiful homes and buildings, which include the International Seamen’s House and what was once known as the Mulberry Inn and is now The Brice, A Kimpton Hotel.

The square was designed in 1790 and dedicated to the first President of the United States, George Washington, who made an official visit to the city in 1791. In the square a plaque to the Washington Fire Company No. 9 was placed to memorialize the men who provided fire protection to Washington for 28 years.
