COMMENTARY, Brack: Visit to Sapelo Island is familiar, special

By Andy Brack, editor and publisher  |  A weekend visit to Sapelo Island, one of Georgia’s sea islands proved it to be special, a place only accessible by ferry or boat.  But Sapelo is also familiar – a coastal haven that feels much like Bull’s Island in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge near Awendaw.

Like Bull’s Island, Sapelo island is protected from development.  Almost all of the 16,500-acre island, other than a 440-acre Geechee community called Hogg Hammock, is owned by the state of Georgia.  Much of it is used by University of Georgia researchers to study the coastal ecosystem of the barrier island.

MYSTERY PHOTO:  Ornate building near a marsh

Here’s a fairly ornate building with a marsh in the background that looks like it could be a small chapel.  But it’s not.  So what is it and where is it?  Send your best guess to: — and make sure to include the name of the town in which you live.  Please also write “Mystery Photo” in the subject line.
