Spread the love

St. Simons Island.

Moss covered oaks and ocean breezes weave past and present together as you hear delightful stories from the prehistoric geologic beginnings of these barrier islands. Passing historic Christ Church, we will hear about John Wesley, founder of Methodism. Other historic sites are Gascoigne Bluff – Hamilton Plantation tabby slave cabins; Avenue of Oaks at the former Retreat Plantation, Epworth By The Sea, and the St. Simons Pier and Village area.

A tour of historic Christ Church and/or Fort Frederica may also be scheduled.

Jekyll Island.  

We’ll begin with interesting background information about the contemporary neighborhoods, homes, and residences. Boarding the Tram in the historic district, once called the “Millionaire’s Village”, we’ll view houses representing many of the architectural styles that experienced a revival during the Victorian Era.
