Richmond Hill is a community that perfectly melds small town living with everything you could desire from today’s modern world. Simply put, days can go as slow or as fast as you want them to in this unique coastal town.
As Richmond Hill continues to grow, the city has managed to maintain its charming, small-town atmosphere. Residents enjoy unique local dining options, a diverse array of local shops, frequent community festivals and events, group recreational programs, and even a multitude of entrepreneurial business opportunities.
The vibrant coastal city of Savannah is known for its fantastic food, culture, and charm. Here you’ll discover the scenic backdrop for films you’d recognize like “Forrest Gump,” streets lined with the historically significant architecture of the old south, and the bustling energy of artists sharpening their crafts at SCAD, the international university for creatives.
Today, the port of Savannah is the fourth largest in the nation and the second busiest container port on the east coast for exports of American goods. The proposed deepening of the port will generate powerful economic benefits such as more jobs, opportunities and long-term business growth for the Savannah and Richmond Hill area.
Stretching back more than 5,000 years to the first great Native American civilization in North America, the Waterways land is a walkable history lesson. Many excavations have been conducted over the years, in which archaeologists have unearthed Native American arrowheads, pottery, tools and smoking pipes. In the 1500’s, the Spanish arrived on a mission to convert the Creeks and build The Mission of San Diego de Satuache, located along the edge of the Ogeechee River.
The Cottenham Plantation
Automobile icon Henry Ford purchased this property in the 1920’s, including a homestead called Cottenham Plantation, and some structural elements are still evident in the community today.
To live surrounded by such history is rare in the United States. At Waterways, we choose to celebrate and preserve this connection to the past. It’s an opportunity that is seldom replicated.
