St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Circa 1923, Isle of Hope

St. Thomas Episcopal Church was established in 1922 and this chapel was built soon thereafter, circa 1923. While the congregation has outgrown it, it is still beautifully maintained and used for weddings and other special occasions.

Raised Cottage, Circa 1820, Isle of Hope

Tracking the history of this one is proving to be a challenge. It has traditionally been known as the Noble Glen House, presumably for the first owner, but that name has fallen out of use in recent references, likely due to the fact that Noble Glen died in 1816, before it was built. There is a gap in the history between its construction and its use by the Confederate Army as part of Camp Claghorn during the Civil War. John H. Estill purchased it in 1888 and built a larger house overlooking the Skidaway River, retaining the Noble Glen House as a caretaker/gatekeeper cottage. Judge George W. Tiedman bought the estate in 1909 and renamed it Carsten Hall. The 1888 house burned in 1933 but the caretaker’s cottage survived. I will update as information becomes available.

This is one of two survivors of a group built in this common vernacular style between 1900-1920.

Georgian Cottage, Circa 1900, Isle of Hope


Local tradition per Sister Rodewalt, reputedly validated in the original property deed, suggests that three Benedictine monks who died during a yellow fever epidemic are buried in the front yard.

Gable Front House, Isle of Hope

There are quite a few houses of this common vernacular style in Isle of Hope, most dating to the first two decades of the 20th century.
