Island Passages - An Illustrated History of Jekyll Island, Georgia
Jingle Davis Photographs by Benjamin Galland
The history, nature, and beauty of a jewel of the Georgia coast
Although it is among the smallest of Georgia’s Golden Isles, Jekyll Island boasts a depth of history rivaling that of its larger neighbors. The island embraces two National Historic Landmarks, a listing reserved for the nation’s most significant treasures. More than fifty archaeological sites have been excavated on Jekyll; others remain unexplored, including an Indian burial mound discovered recently on the grounds of a beachfront motel.
