Built as a farmhouse for John Eugene DuBignon before he sold the island, this Stick Style Victorian seems out of place among the grander cottages built later by members of the Jekyll Island Club. It was used as the superintendent’s residence and housed overflow guests of club members in the early days of the organization. It originally stood on the location of the Sans Souci Apartments but was moved to its present location in 1896 to accommodate construction of that structure.
