National Historic DistrictIn 1736, Noble Jones, John Fallowfield and Henry Parker settled this important outpost on the colony's inland waterway to the south and named it Isle of Hope. Jones' Wormsloe plantation was fortified and armed against Spanish attack until 1742. The island developed peacefully through the revolution, still important as an inland port.
