On April 20, journey with a field trip to Jekyll Island’s historic district. The morning will begin with a tour of Hollybourne Cottage led by Taylor Davis, Jekyll Island Historic Preservationist. The cottage was built in 1891 for Charles Stewart Maurice, a prominent bridge-builder from Pennsylvania. The building is Jekyll’s preservation work-in-progress, giving an excellent example of the meticulous research and craftsmanship that goes into preserving the historic structures of the Club.
Jekyll Island Museum’s expert tour guides will provide commentary and transportation via trolley throughout the historic district during the day’s activities. A seated lunch will be provided at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
In the afternoon, our tour will take us to Jekyll Island’s new museum space, Mosaic. The education staff of the Jekyll Island Museum will provide insight into the lives and working experiences of staff members at the Club. Information on the celebration of the 75th Anniversary of state ownership of the island will be included. There will also be time for self-guided exploration of Mosaic.
