At the gateway to Gloucester Street, the Dart House stands at 4 Glynn Avenue where it was built in 1877 by William Robert Dart, son of City of Brunswick founder Urbanus Dart.
When constructed, this grand home gazed out over Dart Creek and the landmark Lanier Oak where Sidney Lanier was inspired to create his famous poem, The Marshes of Glynn. The Lanier Oak still stands tall in the shadow of the Dart family home today.
Sadly the Dart House was demolished this week after the historical society failed to meet its 300,000$ fundraising goal needed to purchase the home and save it.
