World War II Home Front Museum

The WorId War II Home Front Museum at the Historic Coast Guard Station tells the multi-faceted story of the Golden Isles’ involvement in the home front efforts during World War II. The museum documents the bold initiatives used to protect our coast from German submarines, train fighter pilots, build Liberty Ships to supply our troops overseas, and much more. The World War II Home Front Museum Endowment allows the Historical Society to preserve and maintain the Historic Coast Guard Station, and continue to engage all generations of visitors with our local home front story.

St. Simons Lighthouse Museum

In 2018, the Society lost a dedicated volunteer, Bob West. Bob was a loyal friend for 20 years, and served on the Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 10-10 Crew, which cared for the St. Simons Lighthouse. With donations in memory of Bob, the Society established a preservation endowment for the Lighthouse tower and the Keeper’s Dwelling.
