Indian Mound Cottage on Jekyll Island

 It was built by William Rockefeller in 1892; it stands three stories high, and has a total of 25 rooms. There are 9 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and 7 servant rooms. Indian Mound has an elevator, a cedar lined walk-in safe, taps for hot and cold salt water on the bathtub in the master bedroom bath, and a mound in the front yard which is how the cottage got its nickname "Indian Mound"- The mound was thought to be an indian burial ground, but come to find out, the mound was nothing more than just shells left by the Indians!
