Savannah daytrips: Fort King George State Park

Thursday, January 28th, 2021

Fort king George Savannah state park

Daytrip!

To Fort King George State Park in Darien, Ga.

This year marks the tricentennial of a turning point in North American colonial history. Three centuries ago, British soldiers established their first fort on land that was to become the colony of Georgia. Called Fort King George, it protected a low bluff on the mighty Altamaha River from French and Spanish explorers, as well as Guale Indians. Since all buildings are reconstructed, children are welcome to use their energy and creativity to explore.

From 1721 until 1727, Fort King George – now a state historic site — served as the southern boundary of the British Empire in North America. After a fire damaged buildings, General James Oglethorpe brought Scottish Highlanders to the site in 1736. Their settlement was called Darien, eventually becoming a bustling seaport that rivaled Savannah for shipping lumber. Today, this 18th-century frontier settlement is open for tours where visitors can explore numerous reconstructed buildings.

“You won’t see ‘do not touch’ signs because we want you to experience the fort as soldiers would have experienced it,” said site manager Valarie Ikhwan. “We are known for kids being to be able to understand what it’s like to climb up a ladder into their bunk every night. We’re known for kids being able to understand what it feels like to carry that barrel of gunpowder or ring the dinner bell.”

Overlooking a scenic tidal river are officers’ quarters, barracks, a guard house, moat and palisades. Guests are welcome to climb ladders inside the blockhouse, lay on soldiers’ bunks and peek out musket holes. Actively exploring the fort helps guests, especially children, imagine life 300 years ago. A museum highlights the Guale Indians, 1580s Santo Domingo de Talaje mission, British colonists, the Scots of Darien and the 19th century timber industry. The remains of three sawmills, soldier graves and tabby ruins are still visible today.

To celebrate the tricentennial, rangers will host a series of presentations and celebrations throughout 2021. The next virtual speaker presentations will be Feb. 28 2021, spotlighting Gullah Geechee heritage, and March 28 2021, covering the Scots of Darien. Plans for future presentations include local historian Buddy Sullivan, archaeologist Dr. Richard Jefferies and former site managers.

Fort King George Historic Site is open Tuesday through Sunday, and admission is $4.50 for children and $7.50 for adults.

Explore Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park, Hilton Head Is.

Monday, January 25th, 2021

mitchelville freedom park hilton head daytrips savannah

Established in 1862 on Hilton Head Is. SC, Mitchelville is the first place in the United States where African Americans, out of slavery but not yet citizens, self-governed. This first self-governed town of freed slaves is commemorated in the historic site of Mitchelville Freedom Park on Beach City Road.

On your next visit to Hilton Head, visit this quiet, historically significant ocean-side site.

Mitchellville
*First town where enslaved people were freed following the Emancipation Proclamation
*Located just across the river from Savannah.
*The town was an important stop on the Underground Railroad and the first place to be governed by African Americans.

The park was created by the nonprofit Mitchelville Preservation Project to educate the public about the resilience of the freed people of Mitchelville. This 19th-century town of freed slaves was around before the Emancipation Proclamation was signed, when most of the African-American population in the South was still enslaved. Residents built homes, a one-room schoolhouse, stores, praise houses and created a new, self-governed culture.

Overlooking the marsh is a Bench by the Road, one of 20 memorial bench sites worldwide created by the Toni Morrison Society. The black steel benches are placed in areas to remember once-forgotten moments in African-American history. Learn more about the other Freedom Park exhibits here. 

(Savannah pediatricians) SouthCoast Health on whether hand sanitizer works as well as hand washing

Monday, January 25th, 2021
SouthCoast Health Savannah pediatricians Chatham County Pooler

SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Blaine Crossland

Does hand sanitizer work as well as hand-washing?

SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Blaine Crossland answers that question and shares some facts to consider when deciding whether to reach for hand sanitizer or if you should wash your hands with warm water and soap.

“People love hand sanitizer, because it’s a convenient option to keep in a purse, backpack, or car when you do not have access to soap and water,” said SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Blaine Crossland in Richmond Hill. “It’s great for kids too, because sometimes it’s hard to wrangle them to hold still long enough to wash their hands properly.”

Which is better? Hand-washing. Learn why here.

Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center will be open free to everyone, locals and tourists alike, the weekend of Jan. 29-31.

In partnership with the City of Savannah, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Friday through Sunday, the museum will offer free admission to its large contemporary art space on the southwest corner of Telfair Square.

Visitors to the Free Family Weekend are invited to tour current exhibitions and explore art activities created by Telfair’s education team, including a limited number of free take-home art kits for children.

Exhibitions currently on view include Collecting Impressionism: Telfair’s Modern Vision, which closes after Sunday; Youthful Adventures: Growing Up in Photography; Complex Uncertainties: Artists in Postwar America; and other highlights from the museum’s permanent collection.

Caribbean artist David Gumbs is this year’s lead artist, with PULSE his debut solo show in the United States.
