I love all these little squares with tidbits of historical facts and beautiful trees with flowering shrubs. A nice place to sit and people watch.

It's a beautiful square but definitely not the nicest around. We were disappointed that Gump's Bench wasn't there but it was fun to look around and take some photos.
