    Yeah, it figures, after Tybee becomes a big name…a couple of movies and a few dozen condos, then somebody dies and then some rich guy buys it…
    That place was a so called “eye-sore” for years, but it housed some of Tybee’s best people, people who had hearts and souls. A lot of them have died now.
    Of course, you won’t remember them because your soul has dollar signs on it. Remember the saying, “Money is the root of all evil”? Of course not…apparently…

    Matthew,
    Agreed – the Carbo House has a long, colorful history on Tybee, as does the Hunter House, and there are other Tybee structures still standing on this island, and right now if they do nothing to mark them, they will go the way of the DeSoto Beach Club. Perhaps this is an effort on the part of some to try and preserve what is left, unfortunately, just not fast enough.
