Sapelo Island Marine Institute

Reynolds also replaced the nearby farm buildings with a quadrangle of much more glamorous buildings: Coach houses, dairy house and barns, and a theater.  This whole assemblage of buildings now houses the UGA Marine Institute.

In the center of the quadrangle is a large “turkey fountain”, that has three tiers.  The lowest allows dogs to drink, horses can drink from the next level and people from the top.
There are many stories about the turkey fountain.  Including one where Reynolds tried to blow it up.  The fountain survived and still occupies the center of the quadrangle.
