La Fayette Square
Lafayette Square was laid out in 1837 and is named for Gilbert du Motier, marquis de La Fayette
, the French hero of the American Revolution who visited Savannah in 1825. The square contains a fountain commemorating the 250th anniversary of the founding of the Georgia colony, donated by the Colonial Dames of Georgia in 1984, as well as cobblestone sidewalks.Lafayette Square is located on Abercorn street, between Harris and Charlton Streets. Adjacent to the square is the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. Given this proximity Lafayette Square features prominently in Savannah's massive St. Patrick's Day
celebrations. Water in the fountain is dyed green for the occasion.
