We were visiting family and they took us here. What wonderful history! We watched a 15 min film prior to exploring the grounds and it is definitely a MUST.

The Jarrell Plantation State Historic Site is a cotton plantation and state park in Juliette, Georgia. Located in the red clay hills of the Georgia piedmont, the site stands as one of the best preserved examples of a "middle class" Southern plantation. The Jarrell Plantation's buildings and artifacts all came from one source, the Jarrell family, who farmed the land... More

The plantation is now part of the Georgia park system. The fee is very reasonable, and walking the loop is a great way to get a feeling for the life our ancestors carved out of the earth. There was a couple of displays in the new welcome center, that shed light on the slaves that worked the plantation. The video... More

We really enjoyed looking around this nice park. We came out here to get the geocache that is in the park. I really enjoyed learning about the plantation and the staff were very nice. Would like to visit again sometime.

Found a few reviews of Jarrell Plantation on Trip Advisor & we decided to give it a try. We were not a bit disappointed. We started out watching the movie of how the Plantation came to be and then proceeded to take the walking tour. The homes & farm buildings are wonderfully preserved and it was great that we were...

Wonderful Tripadvisor folks, please note: There is not a "sort of visit" category for some of our trips - we take my dad a lot of places hwen he visits, but that doesn't fit into any of your categories. Perhaps you could add a general "family" one without children, for such situations! : )My husband, my father and I thoroughly... More

Self tour go at your own speed, with reference manual to give more details on the attractions. Stuff is well documented by signage and buildings are a great example of turn of the... More

I last visited this Plantation for a Fourth of July Festival. It was a wonderful experience. As a former Iowa Farm Kid I was impressed with the preservation of a way of life from another time frame.

This place has tons of history. You are able to walk around the plantation and see how people lived in the old days. The property has been kept up very well. You can also stay at the Jarrell Bed and Breakfast if you want to make a trip out of it.

The history that is here is amazing.. I love to visit places dating to the 1800's. You really felt like you were going back in time. The front staff was very knowledgable about the plantation if you have questions.
