Land Trust Preserves Historic Mildred Huie Museum Property
The St. Simons Land Trust is pleased to announce the acquisition of the historic Mildred Huie Museum and surrounding property on Frederica Road. The property will be maintained as a public green space, serving as a buffer to commercial encroachment along the Frederica corridor.
“Because of the historic and cultural significance of this property, it is very important to protect it from high-density development or commercial creep,” said David Pope, executive director of the Land Trust. “We’re dedicating the greenspace to Mildred Huie and her daughter, Millie Wilcox, because of their many contributions to the artistic and cultural life on St. Simons Island.”
