Overview

Introduction to Saint Marys, Georgia

Saint Marys History

The city of Saint Marys was established on the site of Tlathlothlaguphta, an abandoned Timucuan Indian village. This land once belonged to two brothers of the royal governor, James Wright. After the American Revolution, the brothers were banished and the land was confiscated from them. According to some sources, the community was named after the St. Marys River, while other sources state that it received its name from a 17th century Spanish mission located in the area. The community was founded in 1788. At different points in its history, Saint Marys has been a bustling port area, a strategic military location and also a sleepy tourist city.
