Henry Ford’s Southern Town

Located on the Great Ogeechee River, just south of Savannah, Richmond Hill, Georgia, is a great place to spend a day, stay the night, and explore Henry Ford’s Southern town. The automotive industrialist made Richmond Hill his winter home for almost 25 years. Visitors today can feel Ford’s influence through exhibits at the Richmond Hill History Museum and on the Coastal Bryan Heritage Trail while also enjoying the scenic beauty of the area that first attracted him here. Richmond Hill is also a great location for exploring Historic Savannah, Tybee Island, and all of coastal Georgia.
