Representatives from the City of Richmond Hill, Richmond Hill Historical Society, and the Richmond Hill Convention and Visitors Bureau worked out a plan to expand the current historic marker collection in South Bryan County to include sites that covered post Civil War and Henry Ford Era history. As a Preserve America City, the City of Richmond Hill was the recipient of grant funds for the project. In addition, the City of Richmond Hill provided the needed matching funds for the grant, as well as administrative leadership and manpower. Richmond Hill Boy Scout Troop 527 provided the much needed sweat equity to install the signs. The Scouts were moved by the fact that the signs they helped plant will be enjoyed by generations to come.
Colonial Coast Birding Trail
J. F. Gregory Park is skirted by a 300-acre rice field that predates the Civil War. A three-mile walking trail runs along the top of a dike that encompasses the field, which today is a wooded wetland. In addition to a wide variety of bird species, the trail is home to otters, beavers, alligators, and armadillos.
