Part of the Friends of Historic Jekyll Island’s purpose is to assist the Jekyll Island Authority with projects throughout the island. Projects have included funding the Centennial Celebration of the Tiffany Window in Faith Chapel and the preservation work that will be done on the window; tenting the Baker-Crane Carriage House for termites; funding restoration of the DuBignon Cottage; funding the Hollybourne porch restoration; funding the Wanderer Memorial; and many more.
FOHJI’s current long-term project is assisting with the rehabilitation of the Baker-Crane Carriage House. Phase 1 is stabilizing the building. The following photos show the immediate need for building stabilization.
