Wormsloe Historic Site


In the 1730s, colonist Noble Jones carved out an impressive plantation just 8 miles southeast of downtown Savannah. Today, a 1.5-mile, oak-lined avenue leads to what’s left of the house, which remained in the Jones family until 1973. Like many residences along the Georgia and South Carolina coast, it was a “tabby” house,” built using cement that’s a mixture of coastal materials like sand, water, lime, wood ash, and oyster shells.

You can learn more about this at the on-site museum, which has excavated artifacts and a short film on the site’s history and Georgia’s founding. The Colonial Life Area, just past the ruins, often has costumed docents demonstrating period chores, crafts, and trades.
