This image is Bills version of the Dungeness Ruins on Cumberland Island, Georgia.
On September 19, 2020 we visited Cumberland Island, Georgia. One can only travel to Cumberland Island on a boat as there is no bridge from the mainland. Therefore, we took a ferry from St. Marys, GA to the island and, of course, returned the same way.
Cumberland Island National Seashore (U.S. National Park Service) Where Nature and History meet. St Marys is the gateway to Cumberland Island, Georgia's largest and southernmost barrier island. Here pristine maritime forests, undeveloped beaches and wide marshes whisper the stories of both man and nature.
Dungeness (the name of the mansion, now ruins) was built by Thomas Carnegie and his wife Lucy In 1884. The Carnegie Dungeness burned in the 1950s. Today, wild horses and other island wildlife roam freely throughout the ruins and along the beach. Glimpses of the Carnegie lifestyle can be easily imagined throughout the ruins of Dungeness, and through the abandoned luxury vehicles.
