   So Happy August y’all! Is it hot enough for you? According to one of the Mike’s I know, he claims it was 7000 degrees last week. I believe him. I simply do not understand how people survived before Larry Kennedy of Conditioned Air came along. I am sitting here with my a/c on 4 and still complaining.

HAPPY AUG Y'ALL!

CHECK IT OUT!

Did you know? The Historic Preservation Commission meets the third Monday of each month and its meetings are open to the public. During the National Historic Preservation month of May, the commission erected a new historic preservation billboard on the left side of Hwy.80! Posters, note cards and postcards with the design will be coming soon.

 

Did you know? We all know the Tybee Island Light Station is special, but did you know they are continuing to pursue National Landmark designation? It is a long process, but Sarah Jones, Executive Director of the Historical Society and Robert Ciucevich, Quatrefoil Historic Preservation Consulting and their teams are updating the application process.

 

What makes our Light Station so worthy of this designation?

 

• The Tybee Light Station is the only light station in the U.S. that served as a command headquarters and garrison during the planning and execution of a major Civil War battle.

 

• The Tybee light tower was one of two Colonial-era light towers

patterned after the octagonal light tower at Sandy Hook, NJ, which is the only completely intact colonial light tower remaining in the U.S. Tybee’s tower is the only other-albeit partially, extant colonial light.
