The site is solely reliant upon admissions and donations from community supporters to continue operating as a public historic site.

The Annual Auction will have dozens of highly sought after items for guests to bid on, including a pair of Atlanta Movie Tour tickets valued at $130, a baseball autographed by Atlanta Braves Outfielder Ender Inciarte, a two-night say at Tybee Vacation Rentals valued at $500, four Park Hopper passes to Walt Disney World valued at $648 and a Progressive Paddle Board valued at $800.
