Pine Harbor Marina, McIntosh County

I understand that the marina has been located here since at least the 1960s but considering how long there has been an active fishing community at Pine Harbor, it’s probably not the first.

Fishing Camp Cabins, Circa 1915, Pine Harbor

These are three of the surviving seven cabins built for the Pine Harbor Fishing Camp, established circa 1915.

The last two pictured here seem to be in the most original condition.

Harbor House Restaurant, Pine Harbor

Built as a residence in 1930 and now used for that purpose again, this is best remembered as John Arthur and Bootsie Dasher’s Harbor House Restaurant.

Dockhouses, Pine Harbor

Pine Harbor is first and foremost a fishing community. Nearly every property fronting the Sapelo River has a dock.

Whether simple or substantial, dockhouses dominate the views here.

Yellow Bluff Company Store, Circa 1924, Liberty County

The Yellow Bluff Fishing Camp’s iconic company store survives despite being surrounded by modern development. Such structures were once common at fishing camps throughout Coastal Georgia but nearly all of them have disappeared today, due largely to changing land use. The Yellow Bluff Company established the fishing camp here in 1923 and the store was operating within the first year.
