Our family traveled to Wormsloe Historic Site in Savannah, Georgia and we had an absolute blast! Hubby (who’s a budding photographer) took quite a few pictures. Although our kids wouldn’t cooperate with the pictures, he managed to snag a few cool other ones.

Before our visit, I’d never heard of Wormsloe before however as soon as hubby pulled up to the front, I was immediately taken aback with the beautiful oak trees and Spanish moss that line the entryway. We instantly started taking pictures.

Entry way to Wormsloe Historic Site

The Wormsloe Historic Site is a former plantation that houses tabby ruins of the colonial estate of Noble Jones. Jones was a carpenter who arrived in Georgia in 1733 with James Oglethorpe and the first group of settlers from England. Wormsloe’s tabby ruin is the oldest standing structure in Savannah. The site is located within about a 15-minute drive from the Savannah Historic District.

It’s said that Jones lived his life as a doctor and constable and even commanded a company of marines charged with defending the Georgia coast from the Spanish. He died at the beginning of the American Revolution, but his descendants maintained Wormsloe until the state of Georgia acquired most of the plantation sometime in 1973.

In addition to some cool sights, you can also interact with costumed park staff during special programs and events.

We also saw the Colonial Life Area. Our kids were intrigued by seeing the tools and skills of colonial Georgia. We were also able to catch a glimpse of the Isle of Hope.

For the price of $10 for adults and $4.50 for kids (kids under 6 are $2.00), you can enjoy the sights as well as visit the Museum and Theater, the gift shop, and the picnic area. Guided Tours are also offered 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m. & 3 p.m. (Comfortable shoes are suggested as we did a fair amount of walking and didn’t even cover half of the site. Some of the trails extend 2 miles or longer).
