Oglethorpe Bench

Oglethorpe Bench  

 A meaningful reminder of the leader that is responsible for creating the city of Savannah, the Oglethorpe Bench is located on Bay Street. The Bench was built in 1906 and is said to be situated on the very spot where General James Edward Oglethorpe pitched a tent and rested on the first night he spent in Georgia. The curved granite bench is a lovely site, with curved steps leading up to it. A stone mosaic decorates the top step making it an interesting and beautiful complement.

Tourists enjoy seeing the bench which marks the spot, a historic moment in time captured for all to treasure.
