The Town of Thunderbolt, a small town who owes its name to a legend of a lightning strike that created a freshwater spring on the Wilmington Bluff. Native Americans were found to be among the first inhabitants. It is about 5 miles from downtown Savannah and was a settlement which became a shipping point for local plantation needs which also serviced the river traffic. In 1856, the Town of Thunderbolt was incorporated as Warsaw and then began its history as a processing port for the fishing community.
