Franklin Square and City Market

We got off at Franklin Square, Stop #16 and the last stop on the Old Savannah Tour.

The middle of Franklin square is dominated by the Haitian Monument, which pays tribute to the group of Haitian soldiers who fought for American Independence during the Siege of Savannah in 1779.

City Market is a 4-block open market with shops and restaurants.

Stop in Savannah's Candy Kitchen

to try some pralines.

You can arrange a carriage ride as well.

Statue of Marilyn Monroe in the middle of the market.

Statue of Johnny Mercer at the edge of City Market. Johnny Mercer, who wrote "Moon River," co-founded Capitol Records.

Nearby is Lady & Sons, Paula Deen's restaurant. They feature a buffet but it was in warming trays. We didn't stop to try it.
