Nestled among Rincon's oak trees, quiet neighborhood streets and original buildings, is the town's roots as a small, 1890s railroad village. Rincon is also the home of the Georgia Salzburger Society museum, which is located on the site of the first orphanage in Georgia (circa 1737), and Lost Plantation Golf Club, a semi-private 18-hole course.
Once a small, turn-of-the-century railroad town, Rincon now thrives as a vital part of Effingham County’s economic growth and development, and provides its residents with the kind of community they can be proud to call home.
Rincon is also home of the Georgia Salzburger Society Museum, which is located on the site of the original 1737 Ebenezer Orphanage, the first in Georgia. The museum celebrates Austrian heritage.
