The Live Oak in this area are majestically gigantic and this photo by our local photographer Dawna Moore showcases the Live Oaks at Fort Clinch. For those of you that have stayed with us in the past also know we boast one that rivals this size right here in our courtyard! Thanks for the photo Dawna!
The USS Constitution was built from the lumber of 2,000 live oak trees, which were cut and milled near St. Simons, Georgia. The Constitution saw action against the British during the war of 1812, receiving the nickname “Old Ironsides” due to the strength of its live oak construction.
