Wormsloe Historic Site [GA]

Wormsloe Historic Site preserves the ruins of Noble Jones' estate. Jones (1702-1775) entered Georgia in 1733 as one of the state's first English settlers. He served as a physician, carpenter, Royal Councilor, surveyor, constable, Indian Agent, and military commander prior to his death in the Revolutionary War. The site interprets both Noble and his home, and the early settlement and founding of Georgia. A museum presents artifacts from the estate.

The site offers an introductory film, exhibits, a nature trail, living history demonstrations, and picnic facilities.
