Pick up a map and make your way down the trail for other interesting and note-worthy stops.

These are the ruins of the first "tabby" house started in 1793 by the original owner, Noble Jones. Originally it had 8' high walls to ward off Indian or Spanish attacks. Tabby = lime, sand, oyster shell and water molded to harden to withstand the Georgia climate.
At the Colonial Life Area in front of the "wattle and daub" hut, another building method. Dressed in period clothes, David showed us some of the tools of the times and how the hut was built. Chris and Kassi were eager students and later shaved a cedar branch smooth using a rather wicked looking thingamajig (that's a technical term for "I can't remember the tool name").

If you're lucky, you'll be there when Kathy Morris is working. She was absolutely delightful and when I told her I was in Savannah to do an article about ghostly residents, she showed me the remains of the family graveyard and told me about the strange young palmetto plant that will wave wildly sometimes even when there's not the slightest breeze blowing and nothing else is moving. Unfortunately, when I was there, I couldn't testify to this because it was a breezy day anyway. But I believe, Kathy, I believe! Even when not seen, energy never dies - and I can't blame even spirits for not wanting to leave here!

Side note: Reliving history give you an appetite? If you get hungry while here, I recommend a little place called Ozzy'z Grill just down the road from Wormsloe. I took a break and went there at Kathy's recommendation. They had one of the best Philly Cheesesteaks I've ever had and you've just got to try their beer-battered fries!
