Horton House

In 1735, William Horton was granted Jekyll Island by the trustees of the colony of Georgia. Following a Spanish attack that destroyed his first house on the island, Horton rebuilt the home that still stands today in 1743. Horton brewed Georgia’s first beer at his home site on Jekyll Island. Horton House is one of the oldest tabby buildings in Georgia, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
