Description

Historic Johnson SquareHistoric Johnson Square Johnson Square was the first of the original squares and is still the largest. It was named after Governor Robert Johnson, who was the Governor of what is now South Carolina. Governor Johnson was, by all accounts, a friend and aide to Oglethorpe and the early settlers of Savannah. Johnson Square was laid out in 1733 and was the centerpiece of the Derby Ward. This ward was named after the Honorable James, Tenth Earl of Derby, who was one of the 21 Trustees of the Georgia territory. The first 40 houses in Savannah were built in this ward.
