Madison Square Tours

Part of the Savannah Historic District, Madison Square was named after the fourth U.S. president and added in 1837. The square also commemorates Sgt. William Jasper, a Savannah native of the Revolutionary War who was mortally wounded in battle but managed to heroically retrieve his company’s banner. Many local Savannah natives refer to this as Jasper Square in his honor. 

In the center of Madison Square sits the William Jasper Monument, as well as a granite marker that defines the southern limit of the British defenses. Look for two cannons from the Savannah Armory on the southern part of the square, which represent Georgia’s first two highways. These are the starting points of the Ogeechee Road leading to Darien and the Augusta Road to Augusta. 

Madison Square leads to other notable sights in the Savannah Historic District. Looking toward the west side of the square, you will find St. John’s Episcopal Church with the Green-Meldrim House just next door. On the northwest side of Madison Square is the Sorrel-Weed House, one of the city’s most imposing mansions. On the southwest corner of Madison Square stands the Masonic Temple, previously a Scottish Rite temple. There is a beautifully restored Greek Revival mansion on the northeast corner, but it remains in private hands. Note the adjacent building that is integrated into it, E. Shafer Books & Maps, one of Savannah’s oldest and best known independent bookstores. 

Practical Info

Madison Square is located on Bull Street, between Harris and Charlton Streets. There is the Savannah Visitor Center in the restored Central of Georgia railroad station located at 301 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. The visitor center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5pm, and weekends from 8am until 5pm.
