Building #97

Activated just prior to the Spanish-American War and inactivated at the close of World War II, Fort Screven served as a military post for almost 50 years. During that time, Fort Screven was a coast artillery installation, an infantry post, District F, IV Corps Headquarters of the Civilian Conservation Corps, and during World War II, the U.S. Army's only Engineering Diving and Salvage training school of its type in the continental United States.

Built c. 1925, the post bakery served the military reservation and residents on Tybee Island until 1945. The building was purchased by Dr. Sidney Paul Smith, III on June 23, 2000, and rehabilation was completed December 1, 2001. The restoration of this building is dedicated to the men and women who have served our country so valiantly.

The bakery is the first home in Georgia to be equipped with a solar energy system that is tied directly to the power grid. The meter for the home has duel readouts that monitor the amout of power that is sold back to the electric provider.

Owner: Dr. and Mrs. Sidney Paul Smith, III and Family
General Contractor: Grandy Thurman
