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.

Nice walk in beautiful nature but the're is not much to see with regards to the 'historic site' The beautiful colonial house that is still here but privately owned and not to be seen from the road. Enjoy the stroll but don't expect anything more.

Loved seeing this beautiful stretch of trees where they filmed a scene for Forest Gump. We took some lovely photos, but were too late to take the tour of the property. Definitely worth a visit to see the beauty of the trees.

This is a beautiful place for taking photos on the oak lined driveway or by the marsh. The ruins are interesting, but the “fun” guided tour the ticket agent promised was rather dull although quite informative. There are some ruins, a small non-functional blacksmith area...More

I visited here to just see the trees. I visited here yesterday, on Thanksgiving, and the gates were closed. However, I was able to get beautiful pictures on such a dreary, rainy day. I read up on the history, and some movies have been filmed...More

This is a museum and walking tour on the grounds of a former plantation where one of the earliest settlers of Georgia made his home. It has a beautiful tree lined entry driveway that is probably about a 1/2 mile long. The grounds are pretty,...More

If nothing else, the trees are worth the drive to this location. The tour and story behind it is very interesting.

We came for the trees. They will charge you $10/adult to even take a photo. It's really not worth the price as there isn't much to see beyond the trees at the entrance. The staff is rude. They will do anything to have their power...More

This wasn't exactly the cheapest thing we did on our trip but it was quite beautiful. To enter the site the price was $10 per adult and $4.50 per child. Traveling with 4 adults and 4 children made this an expensive outing for us. Inside...More

Granted: the oak-covered road only is worth the visit and the entrance fee, but apart from that, unless you like walking trails, there is little to see. It is very commendable that the owners have made the property available so the public learns about the...More
