Explore Saint Simons Real Estate and Meet a Famous Author in December

In earlier posts, we mentioned some of the late, famous authors to have stepped foot onto Saint Simons real estate. Well on the evening of December 5th, 2013, Georgia residents and visitors alike will have an opportunity to meet an author who is very much still alive. It’s one of the many wonderful events scheduled to take place on the island this winter.

He will be at the Coastal Georgia Historical Society’s Lighthouse Museum Store on the previously mentioned date to participate in a book signing. Because attendance is expected to be high, advanced registration is a must.

We should also mention that over the course of his lifetime, he has spent a great deal of time photographing the Peach State’s antebellum plantations and homes. Those photos, and his impressions of them, are the subject of his latest, award winning book. It’s aptly titled Ghosts of Grandeur: Georgia’s Antebellum Homes and Plantations. That book is the one that he’ll be presenting and discussing at the December 2013 event.

Those interested in the history of Saint Simons real estate may want to add it and a stop to the island’s Hamilton Plantation onto their winter “to do” list. The antebellum plantation, which was built prior to 1833, is located on the west side of the island. It was once the home of a wealthy cotton baron by the name of James Hamilton. Today, visitors can see its remnants year round as well as enjoy a plethora of onsite activities. The list of activities available includes disc golf, fishing, jogging, picnicking and boating.

Of course the Hamilton Plantation is not the only structure considered to be one of the more notable pieces of Saint Simons real estate. There are many wonderful homes and businesses located on Saint Simons Island. To learn more about them firsthand, please contact us at DeLoach Sotheby’s International Realty.
