From the days of early tribes that hunted and fished to the tourists who later relaxed on the beaches, St. Simons Island has been part of the changing landscape of Georgia's coast. When Gen. James E. Oglethorpe established Fort Frederica to protect Savannah and the Carolinas from the threat of Spain, it was, for a short time, a vibrant hub of British military operations. During the latter part of the 1700s, a plantation society thrived on the island until the outbreak of the War Between the States. Never returning to an agricultural community, by 1870 St. Simons re-established itself with the development of a booming timber industry. And by the 1870s, the pleasant climate and proximity to the sea drew visitors to St. Simons as a year-round resort. Although the causeway had brought large numbers of summer people to the island, St. Simons remained a sleepy little place with only a few hundred permanent residents until 1941.

I bought the book hoping to find a picture of the band from The Cloister Hotel... circa 60-70s. I did not find it but loved the pictures anyhow. If you are reading this and you have a picture of The Cloister Hotel Band from that time period, I would love to hear from you. Specifically looking for the saxophonist and pianist. Thanks!

I used to live on St. Simonds Island before moving to Urbana, IL and I was so impressed with the photographs and the interesting comments made about the Island. This is one book I had to have!

Always said I would not live on the island unless I worked there, but that all changed when my wife twisted my arm and it became home for 35 years. If you worked in Brunswick as I did, you could leave all your cares behind driving home on the causeway going home. This island is so full of History one can't began to mention it all in this small space, but this book tells truths you had only heard of in passing. Today too many folks have discovered it as a great place like I did.
