The historic Wormsloe State Park beacons visitors inward with a stunning oak tree and Spanish moss sheltered avenue. You will be led to the tabby ruins of Wormsloe, the colonial estate of Noble Jones, who was a humble carpenter that 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. Jones survived hunger, plague and warfare in the rugged environment of Georgia, and then served the colony as a doctor, constable, Indian agent, Royal Councilor and surveyor. Today, the park runs programs and events, contains a museum with artifacts unearthed at Wormsloe, and displays a short film about the site and the founding of Georgia. The nature trail leads past the tabby ruins along the marsh to the Colonial Life Area, where demonstrators exhibit tools and skills from colonial Georgia in period dress while programs and special events are taking place.
