Richmond Hill The Coast

Richmond Hill has a rich past –find it in the Civil War-era Fort McAllister as well as the 1930s architecture of the Henry Ford period. Tour the art galleries and the Richmond Hill Museum; afterward, enjoy regional cuisine and spectacular sunsets on the Ogeechee River, where sportsmen can also enjoy boating and fishing.

Richmond Hill is at the crossroads of I-95 and Hwy 17 on the Georgia Coast. It is 30 minutes or less to downtown Savannah, Hinesville, Pooler, Midway or Darien. If you have an hour, you can get to Tybee Island, Hilton Head Island, Pembroke, Statesboro, St. Simons, Brunswick or Jekyll Island. Venture through small townships with traces of old plantation rice fields still clearly visible along the marsh, tour our art galleries and our museum, browse in quaint boutiques, and enjoy seafood and regional cuisine overlooking the Ogeechee River and in local restaurants.

You'll fall in love with Richmond Hill just as Henry and Clara Ford did in 1925. After just one visit, they chose this area as their winter home. Clara's dream house was built on the site of the Richmond Plantation, which was burned by General Sherman just as he ended his "March to the Sea" at nearby Fort McAllister. The Fords came to enjoy the unique scenery and wildlife in Richmond Hill.
