Every February marks the anniversary of James Oglethorpe’s landing in the new world just outside of what would become Savannah in 1733. Oglethorpe and his settlers landing at Savannah is commemorated officially on February 12.

Savannah celebrates the role of many key individuals in her history with statues and monuments in the city’s 22 squares. James Oglethorpe is honored with a lovely statue in the center of Chippewa Square on Bull Street. Chippewa Square is a leisurely 12 minute walk from the doors of the Catherine Ward House Inn.
