“Rockefeller's vacation home!”

Indian Mound Cottage is a mansion that was owned by oil executive William Rockefeller. It was built in 1892, stands three stories high, and has a total of 25 rooms. There are 9 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and 7 servant rooms. Indian Mound has many distinguishing features such as an elevator, a cedar lined walk-in safe, taps for hot and cold salt water on the bathtub in the master bedroom bath, and a mound in the front yard which is how the cottage got its nickname "Indian Mound". The mound found on the front lawn was said to be an Indian burial ground for the Guale Indians, who were the earliest inhabitants of the island. Come to find out, the mound was nothing more than just shells left by the Indians.Today Indian Mound remains standing, and in 1947 was declared a museum on Jekyll Island. Tours of the mansion are provided by the Jekyll Island Museum.
