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

This historic site is the former home location of Noble Jones. He was one of the original movers and shakers of Savannah's storied past. Well worth the trip for all of you history lovers.

We can't way enough good about this plantation. Wormsloe was recommended to us by a friend who recently visited and we decided to follow his advice. Incredible and fascinating. We learned so much about the early colonists and how they survived and what they did to adapt to their world. Incredible and fascinating. Make sure you walk the path instead... More

It's a beautiful 1 mile drive under mossy oak canopies, but after that it's pretty much a waste of time. We asked a local if there were any plantations nearby and were directed to this place. It is a plantation...but there is no plantation house or any buildings you might expect in this region of the country. You basically sit... More

The 1 1/4 mile long canopy of oak trees preceeds the ruins of the Wormsloe Plantation from the 1730's. Great video at the museum and interesting exhibits there too. Only 300 yards to the ruins from the museum through a wonderfully shaded trail. An interesting family story!

I know some reviewers complained of the admission cost, but I believe it is well worth it. The drive through the long entrance under the gorgeous oaks itself is worth the admission alone. The visitor center is small, but the movie is quite interesting and is well done. It gives a great understanding of the first colonists coming to the... More

We decided to go here after our waiter at one of the local restaurants recommended it to us. It was open on Monday due to the Labor Day holiday. We initially just did a self guided tour after there was some confusion as to whether there was organized tour. After we did our walk we went back into the museum... More

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
