Dart House, Circa 1900, Brunswick

I recently heard from Brunswick’s Planning Director, Bren Daiss, that this house was slated for demolition. She stated optimistically that the present owners would work with anyone who could move it to another location. Noting its connection to the Dart family, she was unclear as to which Dart resided here. The Darts resided in the vicinity of Dart Creek (Marshes of Glynn Park) from at least the mid-19th century onward and owned much of the land in this vicinity. An early-20th-century subdivision here was known as Dartmoor.

It last served as Dr. Hornbuckle’s veterinary office.

The Circa 1900 date for the house is a generalization made by the city; property records are spotty and suggest it was built between 1891-1920. Further research is needed.

First Baptist Church, 1947, St. Simons Island

A revival meeting in 1938 led to the formation of a Baptist congregation on St. Simons Island. What began as a small group grew rapidly over the next decade and by the time First Baptist Church was dedicated in 1947 there were over 200 members.
