From the descriptive text on the mural:
Loading Timber Products & Turpentine, Satilla River, Circa 1889
Woodbine was founded in 1893 on the banks of the Satilla River. It grew from earlier river-side sawmill communities established in the mid 1800s. Harvesting timber was a major occupation and large rafts of logs were floated down the river to the sawmills. Earlier, the land where Woodbine is now located was part of the Woodbine Plantation. It covered 1,400 acres of land and river marsh along the south side of the Satilla. Over the years, together with other plantations on the river, Woodbine Plantation produced rice, cotton, timber and turpentine. Before the railroad came in 1893, products from the Plantation were shipped to market on steamers that docked along the river. (Adapted from Camden’s Challenge: A History of Camden County)
The mural was based on a 2003 idea by Camden County High School student Jackie Fortier.
The artist was Vernon Potter, of Jacksonville, Florida.
