After the first causeway was built in 1924, automobile travel to St. Simons became a reality. Boarding houses filled an immediate need for overnight visitors and several from the era remain.

Several I-houses can be found throughout this neighborhood, with varying additions and modifications. The I-House is common throughout the South, with 19th-century examples usually referred to as Plantation Plain.
This was likely built in the late 1920s. J. C. Strother was one of the most important merchants of early 20th century St. Simons Island, and the business he founded is still a mainstay of the Village.
This is located a block from the beach.
