The renowned Jekyll Island Club opened in 1888 as a private retreat for many of that era’s most prominent Americans, including Joseph Pulitzer and his family. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the club was described in the February 1904 issue of Munsey's Magazine as “the richest, the most exclusive, the most inaccessible club in the world.” No longer inaccessible, Jekyll Island is known for its beaches and pristine coastal ecosystem, and the Jekyll Island Club is now a destination resort that offers fine modern amenities alongside a wealth of Georgia history.
