General Note: Brockington determined that the Sea Island Healthcare tract and site 38CH1933 were not eligible for the NRHP. They did however readdress two historically significant sites directly adjacent to the property, the Angel Oak (38CH20) and St. John's Episcopal Church (297 4281.00-01), while surveying the tract. They determined that both sites should be listed under the NRHP and their borders clearly defined for property management and protection. This was done due to the need of addressing these sites due to changes in the NRHP eligibility policy since the last determination made on the sites.
