“Authentic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

This is not a restored plantation with an avenue of magnolias, it's a real farmstead in middle Georgia preserved as it would have been used. It is a good walk around the buildings to see how a sawmill and a normal farm worked.

Not worth the money to get in. Just a replica of an old plantation nothing historical behind it. Save your money and go The Museum of Aviation and its free!

Very interesting in my opinion, I went with my parents, grandma, brother and niece and nephew and they all found something to admire or become nostalgic about. A little hill my challenge some of the oldest, but my spry 80 year old grandma managed with a break at one of their convenient benches. Steam engines, plows, small garden, syrup making chimney and not to mention the houses and barns the family used for generations and all the equipment to run a self sufficient 900 acre plantation. They have a B&B there and the family there does tours on Sundays, no idea how that is since I went on Saturday.

“Not much to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2011

We decided to make a trip to see the Jarrell Plantation as we enjoy visiting other living history museums. We found out this plantation was donated to the State and is now run by Park Rangers who volunteer their time.

You begin your tour in the visitor center where you pay your nominal fee to tour the plantation and grounds on your own. The plantation was actually a cotton plantation mostly run by slave labor. They have a few houses on site, as well as a steam engine, and volunteers doing blacksmith demonstrations. The day we were there they were cutting up fresh watermelon and handing it out to people, which was great because it was so hot!

It was ok to see and not that expensive, but I don't know that I would recommend anyone driving our of their way to visit, and they didn't offer costumed interpretors or any other demonstrations to see. It consisted mainly of old wooden shacks, outhouses, a barn, and garden. Oh, and on site it the actual home where the family lived. Today, one of the sons from the family rents out the home to people who wish to stay at the Bed and Breakfast.

We couldn't find anything else in the area to do, and it is out in the middle of nowhere, at least a half hour or more to anywhere.
