GEORGIA LAND ISSUES
Neck National Wildlife Refuge
FINALLY, A GOOD LAND TRUST!
The Harris Neck Land Trust, officially established in 2006, is the organization that represents all the surviving African American families that lived on Harris Neck until 1942 as well as the few white families that owned property but did not live on the land, located in northeast McIntosh County, Georgia. The Trust was created by and is comprised of former Harris Neck community members and their descendants. It is the central and guiding unit of the Harris Neck Justice Movement, the effort to reclaim the 2,687 acres of Harris Neck - wrongfully and illegally taken by the federal government in 1942 - and return it to its rightful owners.
