On a recent trip to Cumberland Island, Georgia, I was thrilled to find screen doors. These screen doors are part of the island’s national park and open to rooms full of history. The green door is one of many in the area designated for servant quarters on the island. Servants totaled more than 400 at its peak, while serving less than 100. The white door is hinged to the current park ranger house near the first dock at Dungeness ruins. The gnats on the island can be unbearable, and I imagine that the screen doors were lifesavers on humid summer days.
