My wife had never been to a southern plantation before, so we stopped by here because it was on our driving route. It is an interesting location, but the large plantation home is not available for going inside and is fenced off as it is...More

If in the area, this is a must see plantation for historical reasons. Half day activity with films, info and walking trails through the whole plantation full of houses, mills and other sites.

Unlike the rare plantations of Gone with the Wind, Jarrell Plantation is the way most farmers lived in nineteenth and twentieth century middle Georgia. You visit the plantation through a self guided tour so you can go at your own pace and use your imagination...More

The Jarrell Plantation was much more typical of a southern plantation than the Gone with the Wind version. My great-great grands had a neighboring plantation to the Jarrells and it was similar in size so we could really get an idea of how they lived....More

A great place to step back in time to learn about our early Ga. folk and how they lived. Vintage homes, barns and tools of the day.

We spent a delightful 2 hours here. Start with the documentary film and then walk the property. Each stop is well signed. It is fascinating learning about the Jarrell family over the generations. They were certainly hard working and entrepreneurial. Everything is preserved just as...More

Went here with my kids ages 4 and 7. It took us an hour to walk the plantation and see all the houses and structures on the property. The walk is a nice stroll, easy for kids, not strenuous but a little steep down hill...More

An hour and a half it took us. But we had elementary aged readers reading. So I would guess that would be tops.

Best Antebellum Plantation experience near Atlanta (4 Replies)
My gf wants to see a Antebellum Plantation before we fly out of Atlanta tomorrow, so we'll only have time for one, and it should be relatively close to the city. I think I've narrowed it down to: *(3) Roswell Plantations / Halls *Stately Oaks in Jonesboro *Historic Square at Stone Mountain Which would you pick and why? (We were most excited about Jarrell Plantation, but it's closed most weekdays including Tuesday) Thanks in advance!

The Roswell one (Archibald Smith) was an actual plantation and it’s near the other two antebellum homes to tour in Roswell. Great lunch places in the downtown Roswell area. Roux, Fickle Pickle, Little Alley are several good ones. The old Roswell mill is nearby too. What time is your flight? Traffic during rush hour can be bad so plan accordingly.
