Sea Island Officially Named

At the request of owners of the Cloister Hotel and of residents of an area of southeastern St. Simons Island that was variously known as Long Island, Glynn Isle, Sea Island Beach, and Sea Island, Gov. Ellis Arnall signed a joint resolution of the General Assembly officially designating the area in question as Sea Island.
