Welcome to Isle of Hope

The Isle of Hope Historic District is a unique coastal-riverside community developed over the course of 100 years beginning in the early nineteenth century. Located on a small inland island eight miles from downtown Savannah, it is bounded by the Skidaway River to the east and the non-historic development to the north, west, and south. The Isle of Hope was established as a historic summer retreat for nearby Savannah in the 1840s and 50s as a place to escape the heat and mosquitoes of the city.
 
The area’s popularity as a ‘summering spot’ increased with the expansion of a railroad line connecting it to the city after the Civil War. By the early twentieth century, it had become a suburb of Savannah with year-round residents.
