Horton House - Georgia's Oldest Tabby House

A piece of history found on the west side of Jekyll Island. Great for a glimpse into the era when Georgia was first settled by the Europeans. Makes for a nice place to stop on a bike ride around the island. Jekyll Sandpiper visitors will soon be able to see a garden highlighting the crops grown during Jekyll's time as a working plantation.

Horton House European-influenced history on Jekyll Island began with General James Oglethorpe, who led a British ship in 1732 to found the colony of Georgia. Major William Horton was Oglethorpe's second-in-command. He built his first house on the island in 1736, but the Spaniards destroyed this wooden structure.
