Cumberland Island is part of the State of Georgia and is 17.5 miles long consisting of over 36,000 acres. Home to many plants and animals, its landscape is made of beaches, maritime forests, marshes, mudflats, and tidal creeks. It became a National Seashore Park in 1972. In its past, the island was home to many members of the Carnegie Family who built a large estate as well as smaller estates throughout the island. Prior to that, it was home to native islanders, Spanish settlers, and cotton plantation farmers and slaves and has an interesting history. Several private homes still remain, as well as some that are part of the National Park Service and are open to the public for tours, including Plum Orchard and the remains of Dungeness. There is also the Cumberland Island National Seashore Museum and the Ice house Museum, as well as walking trails for tourists to enjoy. The island is accessible by ferry.
