Wormsloe Plantation's live oak drive is one of the most iconic Southern symbols. It's been featured in a number of movies if it looks familiar!

Wormsloe Plantation's entrance begins with a one and a half mile avenue lined with approximately four hundred live oaks. Wormsloe Plantation was established in 1737 by Noble Jones, one of the first British colonists in the area. Wormsloe was Noble Jones' country estate where he tested his horticultural interests. Jones protected the cypress and oak forests of his property and never cultivated the land.

Ancient live oaks draped in Spanish moss line the drive to a plantation ruin. The deep sultry atmosphere permeates the air, making you want to walk down this lovely allee.
