Replica of a Scottish Highlander’s Colonial Cottage, Fort King George

Located at Fort King George, this is a reconstruction/replica of a Scottish Highlander’s cottage. It’s the style of dwelling some of the earliest settlers of Georgia would have called home and it’s very primitive, with dirt floors, mud walls, and a wattle frame. It’s hard to imagine how difficult life must have been for those pioneers.

There’s a secluded pond on the walk to the cottage.

The interior is quite small and it’s impossible to imagine a family of any size living in such a space.

A depiction in the museum shows the formal dress of a Scottish Highlander around the time of Darien’s founding.
