Morgan Indoor Tennis Center, 1930, Jekyll Island

By the early 1900s, tennis had eclipsed hunting in popularity among members of the Jekyll Island Club. In 1930 this shingle-sided facility was completed and named in honor of Club president J. P. Morgan, Jr. A renovation was completed in 1986 but a public-private partnership between the Jekyll Island Authority and the Jekyll Island Club Hotel led to its full restoration as a conference center in the mid-2010s.

  1. Thank you for today’s photos of Jekyll Island! I have been there many times and have walked the bike path a few times. Some of these buildings I do not recall having seen but it has now been years since I was there. In the 60s and 70s, I enjoyed visiting the Tennis courts which were open for viewing and were “paved” with clay. My Aunt collected a small vial of the clay which she displayed in her china cabinet at home in Texas. My Mother and I collected shells on the beach and my dad enjoyed taking photos of the cottages. It was always a joy to visit.
