We went on a Saturday afternoon and took the 1 PM tours. The tours start at the top of each hour. Sandra and Connie did a great job of giving us a tour of the house. The tour really takes about 75-90 minutes and you need another 45-60 minutes to tour the grounds. They have a store there called Juddy's,... More

Beautiful home. Best to visit when civil war reenactments are in session. Many activities for families and display of civil war history. The Battle of Jonesboro was very strategic in the Civil War. You will learn more at Stately Oaks. The ladies and men are in period clothing. Easy parking. A short drive from the Road to Tara museum.

My husband and I Really enjoy family history. We are a couple of "snowbirds" looking for attractions while in George. The historical society inJonesboro has done an excellent job of staging this home with authentic antique furniture , memorabilia and reproduction pieces. The tour was about an hour long with a knowledgable guide. I half expected a gentleman from 1860's... More

If you have ever wondered what the inside of a pre-Civil War-Civil War era house looks like on the inside, this is your chance. The home is an old home that was relocated from another part of Clayton County, Georgia, to be used as an historic site. With the house, you get an opportunity to see what an old house... More

During our daughter's spring break we decided to tour a Plantation. We were near Stately Oaks and made the choice to drive there and take a tour. The tour was lead by a knowledgeable employee who provided the history of home and those families who lived there over the many years. The furnishings were explained in detail as to there... More

My sister and I were given a personal tour by a costumed guide. She was very knowledgeable about the house and it's history in the Civil War. The house is beautifully decorated in 1800's furniture and makes you feel like Scarlett O'Hara. The house is beautiful on the outside too and perfect to take pictures in front of.

The Stately Oaks Plantation is the closest "thing " we have to what fictional Tara in Gone With the Wind might have been like. The plantation depicts that time period. A must see when visiting Historical Jonesboro.

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
