When visiting the Kingsland, Georgia area, a rare and exquisite example of Greek Revival style architecture that has withheld the test of time is the Orange Hall House Museum. This three level home is located just a short walk from the coast, and is opened to the public daily, although appointments are sometimes required.
This historic building was built sometime between 1829 and 1839, but it is not known for sure exactly when. Listed on the National Register of Historic Place, it has had many owners including housing our troops during the American Civil War in 1862. It now serves as a welcome center and historic museum for visitors from near and far, and houses many antiques collected from throughout the past. The Orange Hall House Museum was named so due to the abundance of orange trees planted around the property.
While exploring the premises you might catch a glance of â€œlittle Janeâ€ in one of the windows to welcome you, a local legend of the spirit of a girl who once lived at Orange Hall House. Above all, this historic property displays some of the oldest remnants of our past, and is a must-see to anyone passing by.
