    In 1847, the Irish Jasper Greens, a Savannah military group, returned from the Mexican war and this name (Monterey) was given to honor one of the battles in that war.

    An obelisk of the Square honors the memory of Casimir Pulaski, a Polish general who participated to the American Revolution. He was deadly wounded near this point at the Battle of Savannah in October 9, 1779.

    Beside the square, there is the William Mercer's house and museum, a musician. This house was featured in the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" as the Jim William's house, the location of the murder.

    All the buildings of this square, except one, are as old as the square itself.
