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 that Richmond Hill has to offer. Come and visit some of our most popular visitor attractions such as Ft. McAllister. Ft. McAllister State Park is one of the most beautiful coastal state parks and best preserved earthen underground forts of the Confederacy. Features include tours of the fort and Civil War Museum, tent and RV sites, a 1.3 mile hiking trail, bike paths, boat ramps, docks and fishing piers. Enjoy annual special events such as Memorial Day, Labor Day, Winter re-enactments and 4th of July BBQ Picnic. If you are an outdoor adventurer, be sure to visit J. F. Gregory Park in the heart of Richmond Hill. The 335 acre community park includes over 3 miles of groomed walking and biking trails, a state of the art children’s playground, a 25,000 sq. ft. covered pavilion, and large open areas for picnicking. The park is also the home of the Veteran’s Monument. The monument honors all Americans who have served their country. Each slab of granite represents a war fought by the United States in the last 100 years.
