Just off the Georgia coast, this park preserves a Georgian Revival mansion, nearly 204,000 museum artifacts and archives, miles of undeveloped sandy beaches, and more than 9,000 acres of federally designated wilderness. The park interprets the history of the island, which was one of the premiere leisure destinations for some of the nation’s most powerful and influential families during the Gilded Age. Visitors can glimpse some of the numerous plant and animal species that reside on the island and in adjacent waters, including threatened and endangered animals such as the North Atlantic right whale, Florida manatee, wood stork, piping plover, loggerhead sea turtle and green sea turtle.
