Moss Cottage was built in 1896, as shown by the inscription in seashells on the front. Typical of the early club cottages, its rustic appearance is a reflection of the casual lifestyle of the original club members, who sought to escape from the pressures of the city to hunt, fish, and enjoy the natural beauty of the coastal environment.
#ThrowbackThursday -- In honor of the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, a new women’s suffrage exhibit, ratified on August 18, 1920, greets visitors as they enter the lobby of the Mosaic Museum. The four-paneled exhibit beautifully illustrates the story of the Suffrage Movement even as it continues nearly 100 years later. Filled with images and information, the exhibit is an excellent summary of the trials and tribulations of the movement.
#DidYouKnow -- Jekyll Island is a 5,529 acre Georgia barrier island famous for its vibrant biodiversity as well as a fascinating historical significance.

We’re Looking for a Few Good Shots.

Dear Foundation Friends,

When you visit Jekyll Island, it’s almost impossible NOT to take great pictures. You probably have a few on your smart phone of yourself with Jekyll’s pristine beauty or historic buildings in the background. If this is indeed the case, why not share? Post them to facebook and instagram using #JekyllIslandFoundation. Chances are you’ll see them here, and help us make even more friends!

Thanks,

Dion Davis
Executive Director
