DARIEN — A small coastal Georgia county is getting recognition for preservation efforts that will enable it to earn grants for saving its historic places.
Georgia’s state Historic Preservation Division says McIntosh County has become the state’s latest certified local government — a distinction earned by protecting local landmarks with local ordinances and trained preservation staff.
McIntosh County’s historic places include the Sapelo Island lighthouse, Fort Barrington and Fort King George.
The county’s new certification status makes it eligible for federal preservation grants administered by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
State officials say McIntosh County is the 78th local government in Georgia to earn the distinction.
