We bought our first lot in Richmond Hill in 1997 and moved into our home newly constructed home in 2002 with a new born baby and a 4 year old. Our boys who are now 16 and 12 both have been in school in Richmond Hill (Bryan County) since they started Pre-K. They have played rec sports here with hundreds of other children and now play school sports. There is something extra-curricular for each child whether they are interested in soccer, football, baseball, chess club, piano lessons, dance, etc.
For adults, there are two assisted living facilities and one nursing home. A great new Yoga classroom. A YMCA. Another private gym, 24 Seven and a great public trail for walking, jogging and Kayaking at J F Gregory Park. Beginning in the Spring through October, there is a local Farmers Market at the Pavilion at J F Gregory Park every Tuesday afternoon starting around 4pm to 7pm.

I describe Richmond Hill as a small town “feel” with lots of “mom and pop” restaurants and businesses, but all the conveniences of a larger town including Target, Wal-Mart, Longhorns, etc in Pooler, Savannah and Hinesville just 15-30 minutes away. It is easy to get to know your neighbors in Richmond Hill, and you will bump into them at the local grocery stores (Publix, Krogers and Food Lion) .
Its easy to sell homes here when its in my blood! I am a southerner since birth having grown up in the middle of a peanut field in the other side of the State of Georgia, but I visited almost every two or three weeks in Savannah since my mother was from the area and would get very, very homesick and load up her three girls and come “home” to Savannah to visit her mother, four sisters and their many, many children. By Middle School, she had relocated us back to Savannah.
I love the access to the Rivers here (Ogeechee, Medway and Jerico Rivers) that all connect to the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway and boating and kayaking are weekend past times for my two boys, Husband and myself.
There are two Marinas here at Fort McAllister Marina, a full service marina and the smaller Kilkenny Marina. There is a great local “watering hole” at Fort McAllister Marina which is called Fish Tales. You can also check out the Fort at Fort McAllister and a great State Park and camp ground if anyone enjoys camping. There is also a KOA campground with a Lake as well.
If you have questions about the area, please feel free to contact me and if you consider moving to the area, upgrading to a larger home in the area, purchasing land or investing in a business here, I would greatly value the opportunity to meet with you. Warmest regards, Melanie Kramer, Realtor
