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.

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

The entrance is so, so beautiful, but it costs ten dollars a person just to take pictures!!!! We didn't even bother since we found it ridiculous to pay that much money. The other two people I went with said it wasn't that great inside, but the drive gorgeous. Honestly, just stop by the entrance and soak it all in. Don't... More

There is a $10 admission fee and a short film to watch before you start your.8 mile walk to where the plantation was located. There are only ruins at the site. The history lesson was great and our Guide Steven was knowledge (as long as you did not ask him about plants which he tells everyone with a charming grin... More

I was disappointed by Wormsloe. This was my first visit. As a native Georgian who has raised my kids in a neighboring state with a non-Georgian wife, I built this place up way too much. The web site gave me the impression this would be Georgia's version of Jamestown, VA's historic site with costumed interpreters, etc. It's NOT that at... More

It was nice and quite going right when they opened. The tree lined road is stunning. As for the sight, it was nice to walk around. Give yourself an hour to leisurely walk around with no tour.

The historic site is very lovely and allows you to walk the grounds at your own pace. As you arrive you can purchase your admission tickets ($10 for adult) and get a map of the site. It is recommended that upon entry, the first stop should be at the visitor center to view a 13 minute video that gives historical... More
