Enjoy the shaded trail along the St. Marys History Walk.

The St. Marys History Walk is an engaging series of interpretive signs in a park-like/ trail-type environment that outlines the history of St. Marys & Cumberland Island. At the St. Marys History Walk, you are drawn into the time of the Timucua Indians from the 1500's. While reading about our ship building industry you'll visualize hundreds of tall ships lining the port. Envision the town being looted by the British in 1815 and again during the Civil War. You'll experience the lifestyle of an authentic small town and learn the importance of our location on the Georgia Coast. 

You can pick up a printed self-guided tour brochure or walk layout at the St. Marys Welcome Center.

The initial launch was celebrated with a War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemoration Event on the site in January 2015. Site includes a gateway entrancy, handicap accessible path, benches and twenty-four interpretive panels outlining the history of St. Marys and Cumberland Island.
