Built in 1939, the original Tybee Island City Hall served as the island’s civic and governmental center for over 75 years before the city council moved to a new building in 2015.  But it remains a fixture of the community, and earlier this year was added to the National Register of Historic Places, recognized by the Dept. of the Interior as a location “significant in American history, architecture, archaeology, engineering, and culture.”   While the designation does not afford the building legal protections, it does make it eligible for grant programs, and documents its history as a focal point for many generations of coastal Georgians and their municipal government.
