Wormsloe State Historic Site: Located ten miles southeast of Savannah's historic district on Isle of Hope, Wormsloe State Historic Site offers visitors several sightseeing options. Upon arriving at the grounds of the original plantation, settled in the early 1700s by colonist Noble Jones, visitors drive along a picturesque avenue flanked on both sides by over 400 majestic live oak trees. Interesting things to explore at Wormsloe include:
  • Stop in the Visitor Center and Museum to explore the history of the estate through visual exhibits.

  • Visit the tabby ruins of the circa 1739 house, as well as the family burial ground and the Colonial Life area to explore the family history. (Tabby is a building composite made from ground oyster shells, lime, sand and salt water.)

  • Enjoy a nature walk along the plantation trails and explore the unique coastal salt marsh environment and unique native plants. At the end of your walk, enjoy a picnic at the picnic area.
