James Cromley House, Circa 1875, The Ridge

James Cromley, who was the keeper of the Sapelo Island lighthouse between 1873-1889, and the first of several Cromleys to hold that position, built this home in the mid-1870s. It is also known as the Cromley-Waters-Brandt House, for later owners. Thanks to Missy Brandt Wilson for the historical background.
