About the Lower Altamaha
mission of the Lower Altamaha Historic Society is to preserve and
disseminate the history of McIntosh County. One of the primary missions
of the Lower Altamaha Historical Society from its inception was, and
continues to be, the support of the Fort King George State Historic Site
near Darien, scene of the earliest English fortification in Georgia.
LAHS, utilizing grant funds provided by the City of Darien, has
expedited the preparation and installation of several state historic
markers in the community, the most recent being the marker to the
Enslaved at Butler Island in 2019.
