Location! Isle of Hope

Situated on a bluff at a horseshoe bend in the Skidaway River, the Isle of Hope Historic District is a unique coastal riverside community dating from the early nineteenth century. It is located eight miles from downtown Savannah and is bounded by the Skidaway River to the east and non-historic development to the north, west and south. Its popularity as a summering spot increased with the addition of a railroad line connecting it to the city after the civil war, and by the early twentieth century it had become a suburb of Savannah with year round residents.

Despite the title, Isle of Hope is not an island. Early maps refer to Isle of Hope in French as L’Isle Desperance (modern French: L’Île d’Espérance). Legends abound of pirates using the island to hide their booty, and generations of children have gone digging for this treasure. Legend also says that French Huguenots used the island as a place of refuge for fleeing persecution. In 1733, when General James Edward Ogelthorpe founded the Georgia colony, a surveyor named Noble Jones was granted a tract on the island that was eventually named Wormsloe, possibly after an English estate but more probably due to the mulberry trees that were grown there, the worms of which, it was hoped, would form the basis for a silk industry. A revolutionary-era earthwork fort was built at the Skidaway Narrows and today can be visited as part of Wormsloe Historic Site. Jones, along with James Fallowfield and Henry Parker, settled permanently on the island. A small African American settlement in the district dates from the post-Civil War era when freed slaves from Wormsloe Plantation settled in the town. With its foundation built in 1828, the residence remains private. But visitors are welcome at Wormsloe Historic Site, which boasts a stunning 1.5-mile drive canopied by 400 year old live oak trees. Hiking trails lace the grounds’ lush maritime forest.

Isle of Hope is a roughly crescent-shaped area comprised of a varied collection of residences ranging from small cottages to imposing mansions, richly landscaped with magnificent live oaks, palms and other shady trees. Architectural styles represented include Greek Revival, Victorian Eclectic, Neoclassical and Craftsman/Bungalow as well as examples of vernacular cottages and a few antebellum houses. Isle of Hope also includes two historic wood-framed churches dating from the 1870’s.
