HeadWaters Welcome Cottage Now Open
WaterWays Township continues to grow as it announces the opening of the HeadWaters Welcome Cottage, built to serve as the central location for information about WaterWays. The Welcome Cottage is equipped to share details on home ownership opportunities, the community’s extensive lifestyle offering and scheduled events within WaterWays as well as events in the surrounding Richmond Hill and Savannah areas.
The 3,100-square foot structure is nestled in “The Pastures,” the open space conveniently located along WaterWays Parkway near the community entrance. Embraced by the surrounding vegetation, towering holly trees, lush landscaping and antique wood fencing, the Welcome Cottage is an extension of the low country beauty that resonates throughout the property.
A low country style cottage dressed with blue shutters and a wraparound front porch adorned with rocking chairs and Carolina gas lanterns, the space immediately invites guests to step inside. Beyond the welcome mat, the Welcome Cottage offers a comfortable sitting room, a children’s play room, coffee bar and a variety of presentation displays depicting the past, present and future of this growing community. Built on historic land, the Welcome Cottage has a collection of artifacts on display that were recovered from the original Cottenham Plantation estate, an area of the WaterWays property that once was owned by American automobile entrepreneur Henry Ford.
The Welcome Cottage was brought to life by a team of talented individuals from near and far who collaborated on every architectural and design detail to truly make it an extension of the WaterWays brand. From JoAnn Green of G&L Residential Designs, Inc., in Richmond Hill to Prosser Hallock, an architectural planning, engineering and renewable energy consulting firm headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida to Phase 3 Marketing & Communications, an integrated marketing and communications firm headquartered in Atlanta, the architectural and interior concepts far exceed expectations. Making the vision a stunning reality was local builder Ted Flake of Keller Enterprises, who managed construction, with the help of WaterWays’ proficient on-site staff. The building was officially opened during a ribbon-cutting grand opening ceremony on Wednesday, September 16, 2015. We invite you all to stop by and see it in person soon!
That’s a Wrap – Ogeechee Seafood Festival 2015
Thanks to all who came out to see us at our WaterWays Township display at the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival. An annual Richmond Hill tradition since 1985, the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival celebrates coastal Georgian seafood with a weekend of live music and local vendors. The festival draws over 35,000 attendees and is staffed by an almost all-volunteer committee of over 300 people. Visitors this year enjoyed numerous arts and crafts vendors, carnival rides and hours of entertainment.
As a corporate sponsor, WaterWays Township was among a number of local businesses who support this significant event each year. Not only does the Seafood Festival showcase our wonderful lifestyle and the best of the local business community, it provides significant funding support for many local non-profit organizations serving the area. It is truly an opportunity to see the Richmond Hill community at its very best. Delicious bites of seafood, incredible fall weather, and lively entertainment by headliner Joe Nichols all contributed to a another successful and fun seafood festival weekend. We hope to see everyone again next year at this family-friendly event!
