Interesting factoid: The original St. Simons Lighthouse, built in 1811, was destroyed by Confederate troops in 1861 to prevent its use by Union sailors. Rebuilt in 1872, it continues to operate today, owned by the Coastal Georgia Historical Society and maintained by the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Visitors may climb the 129 steps to the observatory for panoramic views of the ocean, nearby islands and the mainland. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
