Keeping up with the Jones'!

Let’s take a trip back in time to 18th century GA. Imagine driving down a breathtaking avenue of 400 mature live oaks, that reach over the road forming a tunnel of leafy branches and swaying Spanish moss. This oak avenue stretches for a mile and 1½ after you go through the gates, and as you reach the other side, you will see some of the oldest European-built ruins in Georgia, called Wormsloe.

What a stunning place this is! Spanish moss adds to the creepiness of a graveyard at night. Thank you for sharing. I loved it.
