Jekyll Island...Who Knew?

Never stopped here before, but how cool is this...Apparently, this was the playground of the rich and famous back in the day...Goodyear..Rockefeller...Vanderbilts...Pulitzer....They built a few small cottages that have been preserved, as well as, a kinda nice clubhouse (finished in 1888) which is still well used!  I think Mia had it wrong...I'm pretty sure this is where JFK Jr had the wedding party, rather than Cumberland Island.  Rumor has it that the founding of the Federal Reserve actually started here over a few drinks.  The historical marker states that Goodyear died at only 58...worked himself to death only a year after finishing the "cottage" here.
