Jekyll Island

Jekyll Island, Georgia, is one of a group of marshy and sandy islands known as the Sea Islands. Located six miles off Georgia's coast, Jekyll Island was once owned by the wealthy players of New York City: William Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan among them. These gentlemen formed the exclusive Jekyll Island Club. They hired a staff that assured them amenities only afforded the rich, which including stocking the island with game. A museum on the island displays this lifestyle through exhibits of clothing, taxidermy, shotguns and pistols.

The State of Georgia bought Jekyll Island in 1947 and since the 1980's has been restoring its early appeal. Today, it's not just another page from a history book. Visitors to the island can actually experience what life was like between the 1890's to 1940's, away from the congestion and racket of modern day life.
