Saint Simons Lighthouse

The original Saint Simons Island lighthouse, marking the entrance point to St. Simons Sound, was completed in 1810. James Gould, a builder from New England, suggested it could be constructed of tabby, a mixture of sand, lime, water and oyster shells. During the Madison era, the builder stayed on as the lighthouse keeper.
