Savannah, GA : Georgia
Columbia Square was laid out in 1799 and is named for Columbia, the poetic personification of the United States.
In the center of the square is the "Wormsloe Fountain" which formerly stood at Wormsloe, the estate of Noble Jones, one of Georgia's first settlers. It was moved to Columbia Square in 1970 to honor Augusta and Wymberly DeRenne, descendants of Jones. It is sometimes called the "rustic fountain," as it is decorated with vines, leaves, flowers, and other woodland motifs. Other items of interest on this square include the Davenport House, saved in 1955 when seven local women started a movement that later became the Historic Savannah Foundation. Columbia Square is located on Habersham, between State and York Streets.
