Visit Drayton Hall
History buffs in the coastal region of South Carolina have a treasure waiting for them in Charleston. Drayton Hall, built between 1738 and 1742, is a beautiful Georgia-Palladian plantation house, located across the Ashley River in North Charleston.
This National Historic Landmark survived the Civil War, as well as the Revolutionary War, becoming the only plantation home along the Ashley River to do so. This exquisite home sits on 630 acres of land, that was once a rice plantation.
This beautiful historical plantation stayed in the Drayton family for seven generations, beginning with John Drayton. He built the home adjacent to his birthplace, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, one of the oldest remaining plantations in America's southern region. Seven generations of the Bowens Family also lived and worked at the Drayton Hall.
By 1974, Charles and Frank Drayton sold the home to the National Trust. Enjoy a guided tour this incredible plantation home, as well as walk along the River Walk and the Marsh Walk to see the remains of the 18-century rice fields.
