“History!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This place has tons of history. You are able to walk around the plantation and see how people lived in the old days. The property has been kept up very well. You can also stay at the Jarrell Bed and Breakfast if you want to make a trip out of it.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The history that is here is amazing.. I love to visit places dating to the 1800's. You really felt like you were going back in time. The front staff was very knowledgable about the plantation if you have questions.

“Enjoyed the history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We love learning more about history so enjoyed our stop here. After viewing the museum and movie, we walked around the outbuildings and learned even more.

“An Antebellum Plantation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The plantation is located in the Jarrell Plantation State Historic Park. Here you see a cotton plantation of both pre- and post-Civil War vintage. There are 2 plantation homes--the original 1825 one and the "newer" 1895 one. Although not on the property, you can see the exterior of the 1925 plantation house that is now a B&B, still owned by the Jarrell family. On a self guided tour, you tour the 2 earlier plantation homes mentioned above as well as other buildings found on the plantation. At the entrance you will receive a map and a booklet describing the site. If you think that the plantation homes were like George Washington's Mount Vernon, you get a real eye opening experience here. The 2 earlier homes are very different than the other plantations I mention above. Although you drive on a dirt road for a short distance, your visit here will give you a view of southern plantation life different than most of us have seen before. If you want to learn how a cotton plantation owner on the low economic rung lived, come here. Plan at least an hour. An incentive is that it isn't far from the Whistle Stop Cafe of "Fried Green Tomatoes" movie fame. The web site is http://www.gastateparks.org/JarrellPlantation.

“Step back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I am so glad the Jarrell family donated this to the state. It truly is a place where you can see and appreciate how difficult life was over a hundred years ago. The farm/plantation is well manicured and offers a great 1/2 mile self-guided tour with FAQ sheet and maps. It maybe out of the way, but well worth your time. We made a Saturday of it along with Indian Springs and High Falls State Parks.
