The duBignon Cottage on Jekyll Island

Built as a farmhouse in 1884 for John Eugene DuBignon before he sold the island, this Stick Style Victorian seems out of place among the grander cottages built later by members of the Jekyll Island Club. It was used as the superintendent’s residence and housed overflow guests of club members in the early days of the organization. It originally stood on the location of the Sans Souci Apartments but was moved to its present location by mules pulling the house with the help of skids and logs and then the structure was lowered on to brick piers in 1896.
