Nice place for some historical reference to the mid 1800's through mid 1900's. Today, not a lot going on except our walking around and seeing the plantation. $6 bucks to get in, unless you are a Friend of Ga State Parks and you get a 20% discount. Check the website and see when they have stuff planned to do.

Fun geocache site would be excellent for first geocache with the kids. Multiple displays showing how early Georgians lived. The day we were there a blacksmith was working and it was cool to see. We brought a picnic and they have a picnic table in the parking area.

I really enjoyed this. Can only walk through and there were a few hills and it was a bit muddy. So not really the stroller or walker kind of place. Well worth the stop. Apparently this was a REAL plantation and ones like in Gone With The Wind were few and far between. Sounded like Jarrell had a bit of... More

A hidden treasure with plantation history. Enjoyed the walking tour and all the implements that were once used.

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.
