On Aug. 4, builders, developers, realtors and others who were involved with the creation of The Garrison Place attended a groundbreaking ceremony for the housing development.
Long County Chamber of Commerce President Marky Waters welcomed the group of about 30.
“We welcome this great addition to this community,” Waters said.
She also introduced a special guest, 3rd Sustainment Brigade Commander Col. Shawn Morrissey.
Morrissey said, “On behalf of Gen. Cuculo, I want to thank you for this. It’s obvious that you are behind the military completely.”
Morrissey, who has served in the Army for 28 years, said that as a father and husband, he could appreciate a community that cares for military families.    
Builder Mike Allen said most of the homes in the development will cost between $136,000-$160,000.
According to information provided by realtor Tina Flesher-Harrington, there are approximately 60 lots in phase one of the development and the minimum lot size is half an acre. The development will also include a park.
Harrington said the land the development will stand on was purchased by James Garrison in 1869, and remained in his family until it was purchased by Eddie Perkins and Cliff Ray for development.
