Orleans Square
Orleans Square was named for the 1815 victory of General Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans, during the War of 1812. The fountain that is in the center of the square was given in 1989 by Savannah's German heritage organizations, one of the many ethnically diversified groups that call Savannah home. Orleans Square was added to the city plan in 1815. Looking west from Orleans Square, the Civic Center is visible from this location.
