Friends

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

In 1926, Walter J. Travis designed the island’s seaside course for the exclusive Jekyll Island Club, Great Dunes Golf Course. Travis declared he “was enthusiastic over the prospects at [Jekyll] for one of the most beautiful courses in the country.” Travis passed away in 1927, and never saw the course completed. Great Dunes opened in January of 1928.

No better place to wander off than the trails on Jekyll Island! Stop and take in the beauty of the sun glimmering through the iconic moss that hangs throughout the island's maritime forest.

Made using marsh grasses, sweetgrass baskets had many practical uses within day-to-day activities for the Gullah Geechee people. The ancient tradition of basketmaking continues as one of the oldest art forms of African origin in America. Sweetgrass baskets made by Gullah Geechee artisans can be found on exhibit at Mosaic, Jekyll Island Museum, where you can learn more about history on Jekyll Island.
