Coastal Georgia Historical Society

The mission of the Coastal Georgia Historical Society (CGHS) is to present and interpret the history and culture of Coastal Georgia as they are reflected in our heritage of significant sites and resources. This includes CGHS’s worked from 2014 to 2019 in opening a World War II Home Front Museum within the Historic Coast Guard Station buildings on St. Simons Island.

Our corresponding World War II oral history collection contains previously recorded interviews about the J.A. Jones Liberty Shipyard in Brunswick, as well as both audio and video oral histories recorded specifically for the new museum. We view our partnership with the National Home Front Project as a way to make our archive more accessible and share the home front story of our area with a wider audience.
