Dear Foundation Friends,

When you visit Jekyll Island, it’s almost impossible NOT to take great pictures. You probably have a few on your smart phone of yourself with Jekyll’s pristine beauty or historic buildings in the background. If this is indeed the case, why not share? Post them to facebook and instagram using #JekyllIslandFoundation. Chances are you’ll see them here, and help us make even more friends!

#DidYouKnow -- Jekyll Island is run by the Jekyll Island Authority (JIA), whose duties include overall management and stewardship of Jekyll Island State Park. The JIA receives no public operating funds. Revenue is generated from leases, fees, and amenity operations. For this reason, the Jekyll Island Foundation (JIF) was created in 1999 to raise money for projects beyond the JIA's financial capabilities.

#ThrowbackThursday -- Hollybourne Cottage was built in 1890 by Club member Charles Stewart Maurice. It is the only home built during the Club era with tabby. The home was constructed with a solid base of 19 brick piers in the basement, and a system of trusses to help distribute the weight and support the living and dining room ceilings without the use of beams.
