A simple but interesting plantation house and all the more interesting for it. The guide dressed in period costume and was very friendly and engaging, recalling the history of the house, it's contents and the family in great detail as well as Jonesboro with a connection with the real Gone with the Wind story. There is also a shop which... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this plantation. We had a very knowledgeable guide. She was from this area and was very welcoming. Even though we were yankees, she treated us like we were part of the family. This is a well furnished house with period furnishings. This gave us a good idea of what a real southern plantation is...

The Jonesboro Historical Society has worked very hard to provide an authentic look into the 1800's. it includes not only the beautiful old home but a school house and general store and some outlying buildings to provide atmosphere commensurate with those times Late .August is the optimal time to visit as it provides an enactment of the days of mourning...

Just about 30 minutes from Midtown, this is a fantastic antebellum home with a fun grouping of buildings. The country store, where you buy your ticket, has lots of unique gifts including moonshine jelly! The clerk in the store gave us a map of the grounds, which had several interesting buildings. The one room schoolhouse from around 1900 had a... More

The Stately Oaks staff offer many tidbits and information regarding the historical aspects of the place as well as the famous Gone with the Wind movie. Enjoy the local scenes at this place located in downtown Jonesboro, GA. Just north of this place and close to I-75 you will find plenty of eating places as well as some shopping.

This was an enjoyable house tour that is also an educational park with various outbuildings to wander around and in. Admission inside the house is a bit more that the few dollars admissions to only walk the grounds. There is a small, country store with cute odds and ends to purchase. The tour guides (who are volunteers and live locally)... More

This has got to be the biggest disappointment yet. Living in the heart of Jonesboro, I was very embarrassed by our visit to the Stately Oaks Plantation. Tickets were purchased in Judy's Shop where the offerings for sale were dusty and out of date. The volunteer barely greeted us, never mind a friendly smile. The grounds were in my opinion... More
