Richmond Hill         Richmond Hill, GA is a thriving community along Georgia's colonial coast, and is among the fastest growing communities in the nation. Located in South Bryan County, 20 miles from Savannah, Richmond Hill continues to grow as an alternative to the increasing congestion and taxes in Savannah/Chatham County. With the opening of a new City Hall in December 1998 and a new Police Station in September, 1999, a true Civic Center began taking shape. In addition, the adjacent J. F. Gregory City Park, featuring hiking and biking paths, opened concurrently with the first annual "Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival" in October, 1999. While the City of Richmond Hill is poised for continued growth and opportunity, former Mayor Richard Davis pointed out that "What makes a good community is a sense of community. That is something evident about Richmond Hill."

cityhallsignsm.gif         Built in the spirit of the "Ford Era," the "Mayor Richard R. Davis Building" is home to the Richmond Hill City Hall. Open since early December, 1998, City Hall has seen numerous events and activities which make the facility a centerpiece of this rapidly growing city. In addition to City Hall, a "groundbreaking" for the City of Richmond Hill Department of Police facility was held on February 18th, 1999. The Police Station was occupied in September 1999. This was the second facility in the establishment of a civic center complex. Along with the Police facility, adjacent land purchased by the city has been transformed into the J. F. Gregory City Park which officially opened in October 1999. The first major event held at the park was "Richmond Hill's Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival," an event held each year. In October 2004, the Atlanta Rhythm Section performed for the Seafood Festival. Former Mayor Richard R. Davis had indicated that a long range goal for the park would include the establishment of an approximately 3,200 seat amphitheater near the back part of the park area. A BMX track was added a few years ago. Part of the acreage dedicated to the park allowed for a 3 mile nature walkway/bike path to be set in around an unused 1830's rice field. It is planned that a portion of this walkway/bike path will tie in with the Georgia Coastal Greenway and ultimately the East Coast undertaking.

Ford Statue Unveiling         Then Mayor Richard R. Davis and Professor John Jensen unveiled the full size natural color statue of Henry Ford in the lobby of the Richmond Hill City Hall on Sunday, August 29, 1999. The statue was raised in recognition of the far reaching influence Mr. Ford had here with people, and the area in general. He was instrumental in transforming the backwater town of Ways Station into a vibrant community with new schools, and employment opportunities. The town was renamed Richmond Hill, the name of the Ford's estate, on May 1, 1941. Armstrong Atlantic Professor John Jensen was commissioned to sculpt the statue, which was paid for through donations only.
