A couple visiting Fort McAllister recently asked Christy Sherman if there were some Henry Ford-era buildings nearby.
“As they were driving through the town, they drove right past them and didn’t know what they were looking it,” said Sherman, who works at Fort McAllister and is the treasurer of the Richmond Hill Historical Society.
To Sherman, the exchange was a validation of the Coastal Bryan Heritage Trail project she’s been working on for two years. It’ll come to fruition next week when 11 historical markers in Richmond Hill will start being installed. The signs memorialize significant places that helped shape the city’s history.
Boy Scout Troop 527 will install the signs, mostly located along Hwy. 144, on Feb. 19 and 26, Sherman said.
