Photographer's Note

The Tabby House is located on the corner of 7th and Ash Streets in the town of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island Florida. The house is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
"Tabby House" gets its name because of its style of construction. Many people think that the siding has been removed but this was how the house was constructed. Tabby was the concrete of the 1800's in this area. If you walk by, you can clearly see oyster shells, sand, and other bits of beach because that's how tabby was made. The tabby is a combination of oyster shells, sand, lime and water.
