Wormsloe Historic Site, Savannah, Georgia

Wormsloe Historic Site....... The home site of Jones Wormslow. Sheltered by live oak trees and Spanish moss, this road takes you to the ruins of Wormsloe Estate. Jones & family were original settlers in Georgia, arriving in Savannah with James Oglethorpe on February 1, 1733. He was a middle class carpenter in England. When he came to Georgia his new roles were: constable, physician, surveyor, Indian Agent, soldier, member of the royal council, treasurer, senior justice of the providence. Wormslow was also know for his horticulture efforts.
