“Designated in 1682 in Philadelphia!”

Washington Square, originally designated in 1682 as Southeast Square, is a 6.4 acres (2.6 ha) open-space park in Center City Philadelphia's southeast quadrant and one of the five original planned squares laid out on the city grid by William Penn's surveyor, Thomas Holme. It is part of both the Washington Square West and Society Hill neighborhoods. In 2005, the National Park Service took over ownership and management of Washington Square, through an easement from the City of Philadelphia. It is now part of Independence National Historical Park.

This beautiful park is also a graveyard, having been used as a mass grave during the Yellow Fever epidemic of 1793 that killed 5000 people. Now it's a great place to sit and read or eat.
