Jekyll Island in Glynn County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Captain Clarks Cottage
Jekyll Island Museum
Loyalty & Untiring Devotion
James Clark was Captain of boats for the Jekyll Island Club. Over his 40 year tenure he saw many changes that shaped his life. People relied upon him and his launch to transport them and their supplies to and around Brunswick during this time.
Clark met and married Minnie Schuppan, head housekeeper for the Club. Because the couple was held in high esteem by the Club, they were provided with a new house in 1900, which was conveniently located directly behind the Clubhouse. The home was located in the parking lot adjacent to you, indicated by the brick outline.
Erected by Jekyll Island Museum and the Friends of Historic Jekyll Island.
