From US 17, turn east on GA highway 99 (beside the Courthouse). Travel approximately 1.5 miles, turn right onto St. Andrews Cemetery Road. (St. Andrews Cemetery historical marker) At the cemetery, turn left onto dirt road which leads to Ashantilly on your left.

There is also a gate off GA Highway 99, past the St. Andrews Cemetery Road. It is not easily seen – yet – but you may use it to come in by the new organic garden and the young long-leaf pine forest replanted fairly recently.

The Ashantilly Center, known as “Old Tabby,” was the mainland home of Thomas Spalding, early Georgia planter, legislator, and McIntosh County landowner. The original home, circa 1820, burned in 1937, and the current house was an ongoing project of the Haynes family. Today, the Ashantilly Center is a non-profit educational and cultural historic site, organized and founded by William G. Haynes, Jr. Mr. Haynes was an artist, small letterpress printer (The
Ashantilly Press), and environmentalist. His legacy, the Ashantilly Center, hosts cultural and historic events and workshops.

The mission of the Ashantilly Center, Inc. is to organize and implement a program of conservation, including Ashantilly property and its legacy, to provide a vehicle for continuing education, scientific advancement and charitable endeavor which focus on the natural and built environments integral to the Georgia Coast.
