Richmond Hill - Friendly, Neighborly Community

 

Perhaps you would like to be around people who are friendly, neighborly and loving – people who are a little laid back and who enjoy the great lifestyle available in Richmond Hill and Coastal Georgia. In that respect, we are surely ranked number one!

 

Our Location

 

We are located on the coastline of Georgia on a peninsula once known as Bryan Neck, surrounded by creeks and salt marshes and the Ogeechee and Medway rivers that flow past the Intracoastal Waterway and pristine barrier islands on their way to the sea. On land, grey fox and whitetail deer run beneath magnolia, palm and Spanish moss-draped live oak trees. Osprey, bald eagles and songbirds are seen overhead while playful dolphin accompanies you to the barrier islands!

 

Henry Ford

 

You may fall in love with Richmond Hill, Georgia just as Henry and Clara Ford did in 1925. After just one visit, they chose this area as their winter home. Clara’s dream home was built on the site of the Richmond Plantation, now an up-scale development on the banks of the Ogeechee, known as the Ford Plantation. Henry Ford’s holdings eventually totaled 85,000 acres of old Southern Plantations. Richmond Hill became known as “The City Henry Ford Built.”

A full size natural color statue of Henry Ford was unveiled in the lobby of the Richmond Hill City Hall on August 29, 1999. The statue was raised in recognition of the far reaching influence Mr. Ford had here with people and the area in general. He was instrumental in transforming the backwater town of Ways Station into a vibrant community with new schools, and employment opportunities. The town was renamed Richmond Hill, the name of Ford’s estate, on May 1, 1941.

 

Community Amenities

 

Though we are one of the ten fastest growing cities in Georgia, the natural beauty of our area has not been compromised. Our subdivisions have been carefully planned to showcase the flora and fauna indigenous to the region. Many are planned communities with extensive amenities that meet the needs of growing families and retirees. Clubhouses, community pools, ball fields, lagoons, ponds, walking paths, bike trails and parks contribute to the “sense of community” in our neighborhoods. We have access to several marinas and boat ramps.

In addition to the natural beauty and abundant recreational activities in our area, there are many more reasons so many people have “flocked” to Richmond Hill and the surrounding coastal area! The school system is ranked among the highest in the state, a top priority and a huge draw for many newcomers. Our recreational programs for children are extensive and operate year-round. There are five colleges, a university and a technical school within a one hour drive.

Richmond Hill has low taxes, adequate facilities, restaurants, boutiques, state of the art grocery stores, great transportation options, and the convenience of being 15 minutes from Savannah, with easy access to an international airport and major seaport.

Historic sites, Museums, Fishing Piers, Boat Ramps, Marinas, Golf and Campgrounds offer a variety of activity for leisure time. We have many fine churches representing most denominations.

So, if you’re looking for a great place to live, it may take just one visit! Like Henry and Clara Ford, if you see our area, you’ll want to join all of us who call it HOME!

Tip of the Day  

How Can I Know The Value of My Home?

 

The secret is perfecting a technique that's as American as apple pie: comparative shopping.

Although comparing houses with different styles, square-footages and locations is challenging, real estate professionals still feel it's one of the best methods to use when determining a home's market value.

A responsible real estate agent will effectively evaluate a home's worth through a process known as Comparative Marketing Analysis (CMA). Through the use of a CMA, an agent will be able to recommend a realistic price range that will ensure you top dollar and a reasonable time-frame for the sale of your property.
