Calhoun Square
Calhoun Square was laid out in 1851, one of the latter squares in the historic district to be built. This shady square was named for the South Carolina statesman and southern-rights firebrand John C. Calhoun. Located across from the square is Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church, whose congregation organized in 1875. The Gothic-revival church was built in 1890 as a memorial to John and Charles Wesley, founders of the Methodist movement. The well known Massie School faces this square. This square is another one of the many favored "marrying squares" that attract many destination wedding couples coming to Savannah to tie the proverbial knot.
