The velvet green swell of land famous for Sea Island cotton production of Retreat Plantation, now The Sea Island Golf Course, gives a magnificent vista overlooking the Sound towards Jekyll Island. The Guale Indians called the island, Ospo. Later, a 16th century outpost of the Spanish Mission system, the Mission of San Buenaventra, was built and maintained until 1686. Oglethorpe changed the name to Jekyll Island in honor of Sir Joseph Jekyll, in 1734. Jekyll contributed liberally towards the founding of Georgian colonies. Jekyll was acquired in 1791 by Christophe Poulain du Bignon whose Negro slaves cultivated extensive fields of Sea Island Cotton. The 1858 voyage of "The Wanderer", marked as the last ship to import Negro slaves in America, landed its' cargo on Jekyll Island near du Bignon's plantation.

In 1886 Jekyll Island was bought by a group of northern industrialists and incorporated as the Jekyll Island Club. The Pulitzers, Astors, Rockefellers and Morgans were among the wealthy families enjoying a private winter retreat at Jekyll. By 1900, The Jekyll Island Club membership was reputed to represent over one-sixth of the world's wealth with such captains of industry as Rockefeller, Morgan, Crane, Pulitzer and Gould on its' elite rolls. The state of Georgia purchased the island in 1947 with the 1978 designation as a National Historic Landmark.

Today, this storied era of Jekyll's history can be dramatically revisited with a tram or walking tour of the Island's Historic District. Here, many of the Club structures and members' cottages, thirty-three in all, have been faithfully restored and are open for tours. The original Clubhouse has been restored to a turn-of-the-century elegant, yet comfortably grandeur hotel. A special note for telecommunications aficionados; "the first transcontinental telephone call made in the United States was placed on January 25, 1915 during the winter stay of AT&T president T.N. Vail. Vail spoke with Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, inventor, in New York; Bell's assistant, Thomas Watson, who was in San Francisco; and President Woodrow Wilson, the former Georgian, who was presiding at the White House." Donald T. Wells, "Georgia Studies".
