Notes:
Founded in 1735, Wormsloe is the oldest known estate in Georgia, located ten miles from Savannah on the Isle of Hope. Like in Savannah, the first known plantings in Wormsloe were Mulberry trees, which were planted to support silk worm production. Many additions were made to the garden like an entry archway, iron fences, garden pools, hedges, sculpture and paved paths. The property is currently owned by descendants of the original owners, but is open to the public for research and other educational purposes.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Noble Jones (original owner, 1735)
