The beloved book by Scotsman, Robert Louis Stevenson, is first published and mentions The Pirates’ House in Savannah and a pirate by the name of Captain John Flint. Captain Flint amassed considerable loot and subsequently buried it on a deserted island. It is said, he died in Savannah from drinking too much rum. His treasure map was given to Billy Bones who helps set the adventure in motion for the main characters. It is said that Stevenson was inspired to write the tale while visiting the Inn and early edition pages can be found in the Treasure Room today.
