This is an authentic former working plantation. Founded around 1865, and in the family until deeded to the State. Lots of history and knowledgeable staff to explain the founding family. Self guided walking tour. Events throughout the year to demonstrate how chores were done then.

This resource is unique and has the potential to be amazing. Sadly, a very bored ranger and the method of presenting information to the public doesn’t inspire the visitor. We started with an older movie (which was made worse by a failure to turn off all the lights) and then moved on to the on-your-own walking tour. Truly, the grounds... More

As in much of the South, the story is told from one "master narrative lens". While the Jarrell family has done a good job of preserving the physical structure of the buildings and equipment they have not been as authentic in telling the history of wealth accumulation based on their slave ownership. For example, there is a minor note in... More

The remains of a real cotton plantation. Houses, barns, and various outbuildings left from a family owned cotton plantation. You get a notebook to have a self guided tour. The 18-19year olds with me found it very interesting. It is on a hilly site and requires a fair amount of walking.

This is a different side to the story of the Old South and the antebellum era and the planter aristocracy and plantation life that usually is associated with the Gone With The Wind lifestyle of the 1800s. Visit the Jarrell Plantation State Historic Site in Juliette, Georgia. It is a cotton plantation and state park in the red clay hills... More

My family decided to head to Juliette for a day trip and after spending time eating at the famous Whistle Stop Cafe and looking at the shops, we headed over to this Plantation. The staff was kind and the video before walking was very informative. We walked around the grounds and the buildings were well preserved. I always find it... More

I learned about this place while visiting the Forsyth KOA. It has a number of old buildings, with information about the history of each one. It is a great way to see how people lived in the antebellum era.

Great stop for plantation lovers and history buffs. Self-guided tour was very informative. Disappointed that not all buildings were open, but able to get a good feel for plantation life. Worth taking time before walking the trail to watch the video to get a good understanding of the history of the plantation and the Jarrell family.

Fantastic place to visit, has been kept so original you get to see the evolution of a pre-Civil War plantation. It is a self guided tour but the map and materials you're given make it easy to follow. If you're on your way to or from Macon it's a great side trip.
