A multi-structure recreational complex, known collectively as the Gould Casino was built by Edwin Gould for the enjoyment of Jekyll Island Club members and guests around 1902. These structures included a conservatory, a playhouse with bowling alleys and an indoor shooting gallery, The playhouse was destroyed by fire in 1950. This structure, originally the Gould tennis courts, was remodeled in 1957 and became known as the Gould Casino Auditorium. It’s now in a serious state of disrepair.

Vernacular House, Glynn County

Endangered House on US 17 Glynn County GA Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing Coastal Georgia USA 2016

This house is a bit of a landmark on US 17, north of Brunswick. I notice it every time I drive past it, because it seems so out of place. Its condition is rapidly deteriorating. It appears to have been built in the American Foursquare style, with slight modifications. I’m sure it’s one of the oldest houses on US 17 in Glynn County.

This was a commonly seen style in Gullah-Geechee and other African-American communities on the Georgia coast in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. As in other communities, coastal vernacular houses focused on practicality over style, but over time have come to be appreciated for their unassuming simplicity.
