Cumberland Island

Cumberland Island Travel Guide

The remains of Thomas Carnegie's four-story 1884 mansion.

Roughly 90 percent of the island is a land protected for the public, and also, one might add, protected from them, by virtue of limited access to it. Ferries to the island from Florida and Georgia carry a daily cargo of about 300 day-trippers and camping-permit holders.

This newly restored 1898 mansion was built by the Carnegie family.
