Savannah was founded in 1733 and is Georgia’s “First City”. However, her history goes back long before this recorded date. Various members of the “Creek Nation”, which were Native Americans, lived here before western man ever showed his face on the New World. Even before the “Creek”, groups of “Archaic” Indians started to visit the area as the Marsh began to form and various plant and animal started to abound. Oyster middens of Cockspur Island, as well as Ossabaw Island, date back several thousands of years.

Time Stands Still

Cockspur Lighthouse is being brought back by a group of dedicated men and women to her former glory.
