Heritage Trail

Embark on a journey ripe with the fascinating people and stories that make up the rich heritage of south Bryan County . You will imagine life in a Guale ( pronounced “ wall-ee ”) Indian Village , see the site where the founder of the Georgia colony built defenses to protect this land from possible Spanish attack , and learn about the unwelcomed visit from General William T . Sherman and the Union Army on their famous March to the Sea .

All of these events took place along the winding Great Ogeechee River , ( pronounced “ oh-geechee ”), known to generations of planters and their descendants as Bryan Neck . The driving tour will take you along public roads , to the front of private homes , and through historical , though still active cemeteries and churches . Please respect each of these places appropriately .
