Impressive Old Oak
May 2021
This magnificent oak is over 300 years old and is well cared for by the city. Definitely worth a look, if you are remotely interested in local flora and fauna.

It's a tree
Feb 2021 • Family
It's a big old oak tree in a pretty little park. It's old. Really old. The locals are quite proud of it. Visiting isn't a transcendental experience. Definitely a must-see in Thomasville for more than 150 years. It's mentioned in guidebooks from the 1800s as a must-see. But today's modern travelers might be a bit jaded to find it very thrilling. Don't expect your kids to look up from their devices long enough to do more than say, "Hmm."

History seen by an Oak Tree
Jan 2021
The structure of this tree is amazing with the number and size of the limbs and the length of the spread over its many years. If you like to geocache, this one will be a fun challenge. I believe this is the only oak tree where you can get a picture made standing near it and go online to see the picture.

Must see in person

well respected in community with support beams, signs, well kept. Fun to see and think about history of the tree in years past of turmoil and how it's survived.

Amazing!

What a tree! This is an amazing oak tree and it's very well cared for. I never realized it was here in Thomasville GA until someone asked me about it. Over 350 years old, it's not only strong and big it's very beautiful. Great to see this treasure being cared for.

Magnificient old oak
Dec 2019
Easy to find, a magnificent old oak tree. Taking "selfies" with the remote camera at the tree is somewhat problematica but go ahead, its fun and free. Worth a quick stop

Awe Inspiring!

Unless I'm badly mistaken the Big Oak is on the first street east of Broad and a little north. Information indicated the tree is about 350 years old so seeing it is well worth the very short walk. The next street east is Dawson with some beautiful old homes that are also well worth seeing.
