Discover Mildred Huie's Landmark Scenes Museum in St. Simons Georgia
Mildred Nix Huie was "one remarkable woman," an impressionist artist, sculptor, historian, and writer on St. Simons Island for many years.
Her love for the natural beauty and history of Coastal Georgia is reflected in her sketches and paintings, now available on this website for purchase as prints, cards, books, and calendars.
Gene Grey was selected by Mrs. Huie to reproduce her paintings as he captured the delicate impressionistic color of her work.
Mildred Huie's original paintings, and the work of her contemporaries, are permanently on display in the historic Mediterranean House built in 1929 on St. Simons Island. An avid historian, Huie researched the former plantations on St. Simons and created models, which are also on display.
Visitors may look through museum archives which include information on famous people who left footprints on St. Simons/Sea Island such as Aaron Burr, Maxfield Parrish, Eugene O'Neill, Eugenia Price, Sidney Lanier, Oglethorpe, the Wesley Brothers, Thomas Spalding and others. Visitors may also peruse Huie memorablilia and a collection of rare books in the Museum's Spalding-Oglethorpe Room.
Open Friday through Sunday at 1-5pm.
