Why the Wormsloe Plantation Is a Must-See


  • History

Dive into Savannah’s history with this incredible property. The mid-18th century brought Noble James to Georgia with local Savannah history legend James Oglethorpe as one of the first English settlers. He built what is now the tabby ruins of the home, which was protected from the Spanish by the estate’s surrounding land. The family that James left went on to preserve the tabby ruins that we see today.

  • Fun for Everyone

Whether it’s a family vacation with the kids or a girls’ getaway, Wormsloe Plantation hosts things to do for everyone. There is a myriad of programs and events to help shine a light on the plantation and its history. Complete your trip with a walking tour through the treasure-filled museum. For $10 or less per person, it’s a fun, inexpensive way to explore Savannah.
