Love seeing this historic place
Enjoy the beautiful architecture, flora, and overall atmosphere of this gorgeous location.
Sit here and ponder life just as Forest Gump did. The actual bench now resides in the Savannah History Museum, 303 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Savannah.
This is the square where Forest Gump was filmed. The original bench was a prop so take a seat anywhere and enjoy the beauty
it was lovely!
This is where Forrest Gump sat !
It was beautiful.
Start a great day with a walking tour with Old City Walks from Chippewa Square!
Have you always wanted to sit on the bench while waiting for the bus and hear Forrest Gump tell you his life story? Visit Chippewa Square and you can!
Lieutenant Dan, I got you some ice cream. [voice wavering] Lieutenant Dan, ice cream.
This is where Forrest Gump sat on the bench waiting for the bus telling his story. (the bench was on the intersection of Hull & Bull, but it's not there anymore)
sit at a bench here and tell random strangers outrageous stories from your past in a Forrest Gump accent just like in the movie and see the type of reactions you get!
The gnats! Good Lord, Savannah, get the bugspray trucks out!
Notice all the 19th century architecture styles surrounding this square - Greek Revival, Italianate, Gothic Revival... even Second Empire is visible from here!www.architecturalsavannah.com
Tom Hanks was here once.
The missing bench now resides in the Savannah History Museum on the corner of MLK and Louisville
The bench now resides elsewhere, but Forrest Gump spent a time sitting here. You can see the Oglethorpe Monument in the background!
The "park bench" scene which opens the film Forrest Gump was filmed on the north side of Chippewa Square. The bench was a fiberglass prop, rather than one of the park's actual benches.
Chippewa Square was laid out in 1815 and named in honor of American soldiers killed in the Battle of Chippawa during the War of 1812. (The spelling "Chippewa" is correct in reference to this square.)
