James (Telfair) and Ellis—this map also shows the later-constructed Reynolds and Oglethorpe Squares.
The city of Savannah was founded in 1733 by General James Oglethorpe.

A square was established for each ward of the new city.
city of Savannah, Georgia was laid out in 1733 around four open squares, each surrounded by four residential ("tything") blocks and four civic ("trust") blocks.
The layout of a square and eight surrounding blocks was known as a "ward." The original plan (now known as the Oglethorpe Plan) was part of a larger regional plan that included gardens, farms, and "out-lying villages." While some authorities believe that the original plan allowed for growth of the city and thus expansion of the grid, the regional plan suggests otherwise: the ratio of town lots to country lots was in balance and growth of the urban grid would have destroyed that balance.
They are bounded to the west and east by the south- and north-bound lanes of the intersecting north-south street, and to the north and south by smaller one-way streets running east-to-west and west-to-east, respectively.
As a result, traffic flows one way—counterclockwise—around the squares, which thus function much like traffic circles.
