Wormsloe Historic Site, Savannah Georgia

 

Wormsloe Historic Site

Another popular place in Savannah is the Wormsloe Historic Site on the Isle of Hope. A breathtaking avenue sheltered by live oaks and Spanish moss over 1 mile long leads to the tabby ruins of Wormsloe, the colonial estate of Noble Jones (1702-1775). Jones was a humble 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.

Normally this place is very strict with photography, like any camera that looks like it cost $300 dollars or more they call  a pro. camera, and our last visit they wanted some outrageous fee and you to sign your life away that they owned the photos you took, a bit overkill for one of the most photographed spots in town. This visit the weather was much cooler and it kept people away for the most part, and on top of that the main entrance park office was closed, so I was lucky to have the lane to myself without people or cars, which is rare at this location. The greenery was not quite into springtime mode just yet, but this place makes for great photos and is quite amazing to see.

Thanks for Stopping
