The Skeet House, 1930s, Jekyll Island

Outdoor recreation was a primary goal of the Jekyll Island Club from its inception. Though hunting had fallen out of widespread popularity among club members by 1910, skeet and trap shooting remained popular among both men and women in the Club. The Skeet House was originally located a mile north of its present location on the Skeet and Trap Range used by members of the Jekyll Island Club. Due to policies governing developed and undeveloped land on the island, it was moved and restored in 2014 so it could be appreciated by the public.
