History nerds like me will be surprised at many roles Jekyll has played throughout time. First as home to native Indians, a plantation, an illegal port for the slave trade, and the more well known Millionaires Club Era when Jekyll was the private playground for wealthy families such as the Vanderbilt, Pulitzer, Goodyear and many other industry titans.
