We enjoyed walking amongst the house ruins, it is in surprisingly good shape considering the age. We also enjoyed the old graveyard across the street and reading the informative historic signs.

Easy stroll beside the road. Some ruins on both sides. A few grave markers. Markers explain what the buildings were who built them and who lived there. What they leave out is that one of the original island settlers was also a notorious and cruel slave smuggler at a time when slavery was not allowed in Georgia.

We rode our bikes to the Horton House. Lots of information to read about the house and former owners. Good place to take photos.
