  • Wander around the ruins of Horton House, located just 10 minutes away from the Jekyll Island Club Resort. The Horton House is one of the most historic tabby buildings in Georgia, having been built in 1743. The site also includes the cemetery of the DuBignon Family, which owned Jekyll Island from 1790 to 1886, and occupied the house as their home from 1790 until sometime in the mid-1800s. The site is currently listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

  • Explore the Wanderer Memory Trail. A recipient of the UNESCO Slave Route Project “Site of Memory” designation, the trail details the impact of the Middle Passage on Jekyll Island over 150 years ago.

  • Travel to Fort Frederica National Monument. Located on the neighboring St. Simons Island, this remarkable historic destination features the remains of a colonial settlement established by James Oglethorpe in 1736. It is now listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

  • Journey over to Faith Chapel, the historic church built in 1904 for members of the Jekyll Island Club. The building contains one of four signed Tiffany stained glass windows. Used as a non-denominational chapel until 1942, the state of Georgia purchased it along with Jekyll Island in some five years later.

  • Hop over to nearby Brunswick to see the Neoclassical Revival-style Historic Brunswick Courthouse. Completed in 1907, this spectacular building was designed by Charles Alling Gifford of the New York-based company, Gifford & Bates. Gifford’s work are a notable component of Jekyll Island’s National Historic Landmark District, specifically its Sans Souci Apartments (1896), Mistletoe Cottage (1900), and Jekyll Island Clubhouse Annex (1901).

  • Stroll through the Brunswick Old Town Historic District and find the Lover’s Oak. The Lover's Oak is a historic large Southern oak tree that is purported to be over nine centuries in age.

  • Drive up to neighboring Darien to appreciate the Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation Historic Site, which is related to the historical culture of Georgia’s rice coast. Using enslaved African-American laborers, William Brailsford of Charleston created a rice plantation from the marshes along the Altamaha River during the early 1800s. The plantation owners were part of the genteel low-country society that controlled the coastline.

  • Marvel at Fort King George, one of the most historic citadels remaining on Georgia’s shores. Also located in Darien, the Fort King George was the southernmost outpost of the British Empire in North America from 1721 to 1736.
