While Tara is of course a fictional place, Stately Oaks is a beautifully preserved and presented home showing how life was lived during the time of the War Between the States. Plantation of course means farm and not what was created by Hollywood in 1939 for the movie. The docents are wonderful and go to great pains to be dressed... More

My cousin and I visited Stately Oaks Plantation in Jonesboro, Georgia on Jan. 17. 2015 and went on the house tour. The two women who gave the tour were very knowledgeable and gave us an outstanding tour along with a great history lesson. If your in Atlanta, GA, take a short ride to Jonesboro, GA to visit the Stately Oaks... More

This "plantation" is very misleading … it's really a small piece of property with a normal looking house. As soon as you arrive, you realize that you've been had. There is simply no reason to go. As for the nearby indian village, it looks like old children's toys in the backyard. Don't take the time to drive out here from... More

I was very exited as we drove to the stately oaks plantation but as I drove up I realized that it was closed and locked up even though the sign out front said OPEN. I also thought that it would be an actual plantation but instead it was a medium sized house and a few huts on what looks like... More

The Stately Oaks Plantation home is a nice look in to southern history, just a short drive south of Atlanta's Hartsfield airport. The docent was very knowledgeable and our group walked away with not only an enjoyable tour of about 1 hour, but also several facts about life in the 19th century. The site and tour is more about life... More

We visited this plantation house outside Atlanta, Ga. on our way to the airport for our return trip from the USA. It is a beautiful house in a beautiful setting with the Fall colours in the trees surrounding the property. When we visited it wasn't busy and the guide was able to spend time answering our many questions. There is... More

I love Stately Oaks. It used to be a hospital during the Civil War. It was originally located behind my house where I grew up. It was moved to Jonesboro and restored. My sister, Melanie, was married there. Very old South.

We were greeted by Martha who is a delight. Our tour guide was Ashleigh who is very knowledgeable about the history of the house and land around it. She is a real peach!

Stately Oaks was a very entertaining and informative stop in the Jonesboro area. I feel that the plantation gets overlooked by visitors traveling to the Road to Tara! Do you want to get a feel for a home like TARA? Visit visit visit!
