Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

Been here a few times. It’s good for pictures and/or for a quick visit. Definitely don’t plan a trip, or even part of a day for it. You can basically see all that there is to it from the road. You can see all that there is to it in 5 minutes, no exaggeration. There’s like one or two informational panels to do with its historical value (nothing much, it housed a general or something). It’s a pretty little side attraction, though.

The history behind the house is certainly interesting and knowing that its almost 300 years old is impressive, but there isn't much there but old walls.

We were visiting the Turtle Center and decided to circle Jekyll, happened upon this and my 7 year old thought it was amazing. It was a rainy day so that made the ruins and cemetery all that more exciting for a young boy! Some great photo ops as well

I know it's been a long time since I've been able to get back to Jekyll....so I am behind the times. I love the updates in the efforts on preserving the Hortons home and burial site.

This is just an empty ruin of an old house. Absolutely nothing in it. Make sure you read the posted sign to know what it is about.
