Franklin Square
 
 

Franklin Square was created in 1791 and was named in honor of Benjamin Franklin who was an agent for the Colony of Georgia from 1768 to 1775. In those days, the square was referred to as Water Tank Square, Water Tower Square and the Reservoir Square, because it was the site of the city’s water supply. The square is located at the Western End of City Market, where visitors can find distinctive shops, antiques and fabulous dining experiences.

Rich in history and tradition, the First African Baptist Church of Savannah is the oldest black church in America. It was founded in 1775 and was originally called the First Colored Church. The name was changed to First African Church in 1822, and has welcomed worshipers throughout the community since its inception. Today’s sanctuary was built in 1859 by the actual members of the congregation and was the first brick building erected and owned by blacks in the State of Georgia. It is listed in the National Register of Historic places and is a site of interest to many thousands of visitors throughout the year. Besides its charming architecture and authentic interior details, the church is home to the first museum in a black church. There, guests can view archives and memorabilia that date back to the 18th century. Guided tours are given of the church and museum daily.
