Plantation Structure & Ruins
Originally owned by Henry Parker, the land was divided into lots in the 1850s and 1860s.

These were sold to prominent Savannah Georgia families who built palatial homes along the water.

A small African American settlement in the district dates from after the Civil War when freed slaves from Wormsloe Plantation settled in the town.

In 1871 a railroad was built connecting Savannah with Isle of Hope and by the early 20th century many residents were living in the town year-round.

The historic district encompasses a large area extending back from the Skidaway River.

Landscaped with old oak trees covered in Spanish moss, the houses range in style from Greek Revival, Victorian, and Neoclassical to Craftsman Bungalows. Many of the residences also have both formal and informal gardens.
