"Established as a retreat in the 19th century for the elite of Savannah, Isle of Hope provided a refuge from the intense heat and outbreaks of malaria prevalent throughout the summer months. Originally owned by Henry Parker [and once known as Parkersburg], the land was divided into lots in the 1850s and 1860s. These were sold to prominent Savannah families who built palatial homes along the water.Local Insider's Tip:If you're in Savannah on Monday, and arrive at Wormsloe gate (which is closed on Monday), keep driving to nearby Bluff Drive in Isle of Hope for picturesque scenes like these.
