Isle of Hope in Chatham County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Isle of Hope
National Historic Historic District
The 1800's brought more residents and farms. Although strongly armed during the Civil War, no action took place. By 1870 daily trains served the growing interest in the island as a resort. Barbee's pavilion, at the river terminus of the railroad, became world renown in the 1920's. Activity centered on the river and many large homes were built. Isle of Hope continues today as a tranquil outpost of coastal life.
