Oglethorpe Square

Oglethorpe Square is situated on Abercorn St. between State St. and York St. It was originally laid out in 1742 and honors General Oglethorpe, the founder of historic Savannah. Overlooking this square is the Owens -Thomas House, designed by William Jay and built 1816-1819. This lovely house is considered one of the finest examples of English Regency Architecture in America.
