Owner description: A breathtaking live oak avenue leads visitors one mile down a colonial road to a vistor center, where they can watch short historical film, tour a museum, and browse a gift shop. 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. Five more miles of nature trails are available for those who are more adventurous.

Visited with family in April. Beautiful Wooded site with very nice visitors center and friendly staff. The short documentary about Noble Jones, founder of the homestead/plantation is very well done, as is the museum.

Our one tip here is ensure you are with a guide. We got lucky and joined a 12noon tour with Jesse, and he made this place come alive with the history of Noble Jones and his family. Jesse was a very funny guy and had lots of anecdotes that added to the detail. No extra cost for this tour and without it you would just be wandering through a lovely forest, as the home is not open to the public. Make sure you watch the film too. The Live Oak driveway is worth a visit. Cost $10.

The Wormsloe plantation is historically significant for the Savannah settlement. The actual remains of the homestead show the frontier environment of this areas early colony. The mile-long live oak lined road that leads to the original site is absolutely beautiful. The visitor center provides a nice description of the settlement and this plantation. The trails around the grounds lead to several interesting displays. Overall, our visit was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Much more than we expected. Interesting history video to see before you begin walking around. Easy paths to walk to see everything.

The entry to this site is well-known and beautiful. The rest was interesting but fairly typical. I continued to be surprised that former plantations give no mention of the slavery that took place on the grounds and the slave labor that helped build it to be what it is.
