Discovering Wormsloe, Grades K-12

Discover the vibrant history of Colonial Georgia at Wormsloe State Historic Site. Wormsloe was once the colonial estate of Noble Jones, who sailed to America in 1733 with General James Oglethorpe and 114 others to establish the colony of Georgia.

A field trip visit includes a guided tour of the Interpretive Trail, where students will see the ruins of Noble Jones’s original fortified home, the family burial site, and an Indigenous American shell midden.

Groups can further customize this experience by adding the following activities:

  • A tour of the Colonial Life Area, which features a working blacksmithing forge and a to-scale replica of a traditional wattle-and-daub home
  • Colonial Games, which may include graces, nine-pins, and double ball (recommended for students of all ages)
  • Colonial Cricket (recommended for 4th grade and up)

The small museum, which houses artifacts excavated from the ruins, is also available for groups to explore.
