A Photo a Week Challenge: Over 100 Years Old

Our love of National Parks brought Neal and I to Cumberland Island National Seashore Museum located off St. Marys, Georgia. The only on The island is by ferry. Once there we hiked the island in search of the Dungeness Ruins.

These ruins are what is left of the mansion Dungeness built by James Oglethorpe in 1736. The mansion was built to be a hunting lodge. There are accounts that the first Dungeness was built by Nathanael Green in 1783. Famed Thomas Carnegie is also to have added to the massive mansion’s structure in 1884 but it was burned in the 1950’s after years of opulent living.
