This plantation house holds special significance as the oldest plantation house in the US. It is empty and unrestored but as such provides insight into the architecture. Rosemary was a very good tour guide and clearly knows the history and details well. The house tour...More
Drayton Hall is a wonderful exam of historic preservation, rather than restoration. Many of the grand houses in and around Charleston have been restored to a particular period and are not authentic. Drayton Hall, however, remains as it is, without furniture, and restored only structurally...More
Went to a wedding on the property. It was lovely. The food was catered. Did a tour of the homestead. Interesting as the oldest plantation in the US. Shop on the premises. Lovely place to walk along the river. Non-Profit.
It is really interesting to visit the various plantations in the area and compare and contrast. Drayton Hall does not have some of the wildlife tours and children's activities that Boone Hall and Magnolia have, but Drayton Hall certainly has a rich history. Somehow it...More

Not really. There is a tiny shop in which it would be hard to turn a wheelchair around. By next summer there will be a brand new large visitor center that presumably will be accessible. We took stairs to go up to the second floor and down to the basement. You should call to find out whether they can accommodate wheelchairs. You could of course visit the grounds, but we did not do that, so I don't know how much is paved vs. walking on grass.
