Facts About Sea Island Georgia


Sea Island is an isolated resort island located in what are called the "barrier islands" just off the Atlantic coast of southern Georgia in the United States. The resort complex is located in an unincorporated part of Glynn County.

Sea Island is part of the group of islands known as the Golden Isles of Georgia. Visitors to the resort island travel across a long causeway which crosses marshland, immortalized by 19th century poet Sidney Lanier in 'The Marshes of Glynn" (1878).

This relatively secluded area has drawn developers and other investors since the first two decades of the 20th century:

    * 1911 -- Howard Coffin (owner of the Hudson Motor Company) purchased 20,000 acres of land on nearby Sapelo Island; and he began developing it as a private retreat.

    * 1926 -- Coffin purchased what was formerly called Long Island; and he renamed it Sea Island.

    * 1927 -- The Plantation golf course was built.

    * 1928 -- Coffin began an overnight inn and lodge with the most exclusive clients only. This resort was named "The Cloister." (More...)
