Discover the Rich History of Richmond
Hill This Spring - 2013
If you have the pleasure of visiting Richmond Hill, Georgia in the springtime, you will surely want to get outdoors to marvel in the natural beauty of the area. One great way to do that is to visit the Coastal Bryan Heritage Trail. The trail begins at 5270 Cedar Street, Richmond Hill.
Created in large part by the efforts of the Richmond Hill Boy Scout Troop 527, the trail boasts 32 historical marker sites that paint Richmond Hill and Bryan County's history back to pre-Civil War days all the way through the 1930's. Of particular interest are the points that reflect the contribution that Henry and Clara Ford made to the area while living in their winter home on the Ogeeche River near Richmond Hill (known then as Ways Station).
If you choose to follow the trail, put on some good walking shoes or bring a vehicle because there is more than one can see in an hour! Some of the highlights of the trail are the Courthouse Annex built in 1793, Ways Station, built in 1856 and the Community House, an imposing building that the Fords built in 1936.
Community House offered area residents access to cultural development, education and community events like dancing without cost. It served as a community center where locals could learn cooking skills, home economics, and sewing but also spend the evening hours basked in live music.
Another gracious reminder of Richmond Hill's past is the Burnt Church Cemetery. Here you can meditate while strolling through a graveyard filled with some of Bryan County's first residents. Built alongside the Bryan Neck Presbyterian Church in 1830, the cemetery remains a visible marker of local history even though the church itself burned in 1882.
True to the impact the Ford's had on Richmond Hill is the Martha-Mary Chapel named in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ford. Built in 1937, the building was dedicated to the spiritual needs of students at nearby school.
You will also want to visit the George Washington Carver School, built in 1939. It was built by Henry Ford to provide African American children with access to a quality education. Named in honor of the famous agriculturalist and educator, George Washington Carver, the school was years ahead of the curve toward creating equality in education.
True to the impact the Ford's had on Richmond Hill is the Martha-Mary Chapel named in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ford.
