A little off the beatin path, stop in Juliette on the way. Very well preserved and explained by the State of Georgia. Give yourself plenty of time,(1-2 hours) as the Plantation is spread out. Check out the visitors center before exploring. This will prepare you better for the experience. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The Ticket price is alittle... More

The plantation was kept in the family for over a century so everything here is original, including the location of the buildings. At the Visitor's Center, there is a 15 minute film that tells the history of the land, the family and the farming practices of the day. The 1/2 mile loop around the property takes you to all the...

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

We did 3 plantations during our recent tour and this one was the best. Well organized pleasant staff and some historical information to review at the headquarters. 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
