Hutchinson Island forms the northern bank of the main shipping channel of the Savannah River opposite the Georgia Port Authority terminal at Garden City. In actuality, this modern island is the result of the merging of King Island with Fig Island by the deposition of dredged spoil from the river. This junction apparently occurred after 1934 when the Frazer station was placed on the riverbank at a point some 100 m downstream from the site (Barney Putziger, personal communication, November 3, 1982).
