A walking trail leads to the 1737 tabby ruins of the oldest remaining structure in the Savannah. Trails meander past scenic marsh views to the Colonial Life Area, where costumed interpreters provide living history demonstrations in the afternoons, weather permitting. Five more miles of nature trails are available for those who are more adventurous. « less

I find it interesting that so many reviewers felt that the site is pricy. The cost of admission is $10 per adult, which I found well worth the price. The magnificent avenue of oaks is a sight to see; 400 live oaks line the road and truly amazing to behold. The visitors center features a small museum with artifacts from... More

After visiting a nearby state nature park it was recommended that we check out this historic site. We arrived mid afternoon and the sun in the trees was breathtaking. We paid for our (pricey) entry and began the drive. No one was driving behind us till suddenly we were quite overtaken by a park truck with two men in it... More

We had to stop here after reviewing attractions and seeing the road with the canopy of oaks framing it. It is beautiful. We paid the admission fee and watched the short movie about the owners, walked down the road to the spot where the house used to be; however, we agreed the best part was just parking the car and...

This was a lovely morning spent at this beautiful site. Jesse, our tour guide, was so informative and friendly. The drive under the Spanish moss was beautiful.

The live oak lined avenue leading into the historic site is well worth the trip! Over 400 live oaks grace your dirt road drive into the 1 mile loop walking tour. The site is impressive - especially for history lovers - and nature lovers. We enjoyed the respite from the hustle of Savannah!

My wife and I visited this site on our last day in Savannah last week. The museum was interesting and there was an informative film. However, there was not a lot to see on the grounds even though there was a lot of land to walk. The price was too much for what was offered.

It takes 20 minutes from downtown. If you go through the city you see truly great houses along the way. It's 10 bucks get into the plantation. It's worth it, it's history! And, it is very beautiful. Well worth the triip

Was very impressed with the beautiful live oaks at the entrance to this former plantation. A brief film at the welcome center provides you with the history of what Noble Jones did here. A delightful guide showed us the grounds along with providing the historical facts at each stop of the tour. The woods and the grounds is a beautiful... More

$10 regular admission is worth it probably if you plan on doing the hikes and also if there is a special event going with the costumed actors. Otherwise, you can take your free picture of the lane, buy a postcard ($0.50) or two in the office and be on your way. I paid the admission. Drove down the lane, watched... More

Was a waist of 1 hour round trip from historic savannah to see an oak lined drive. After I drove the oak lines drive I went back to the front and asked how to veto the plantation home I was told you could see it from the oak drive off to the left and that it was private property and... More
