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 St Simons 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 St Simons
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 St Simons Island near du Bignon's
In 1886 St Simons Island was bought by a group of northern
industrialists and incorporated as the St Simons Island Club. The
Pulitzers, Astors, Rockefellers and Morgans were among the wealthy
families enjoying a private winter retreat at Jekyll. By 1900, The St
Simons 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
