Drayton Hall, a Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is located in Charleston, S.C. Visitors come from all over to experience and learn about this beautiful and historic southern plantation, and to uncover the history and stories that Drayton Hall holds.
As one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in America, Drayton Hall is the oldest preserved plantation house open to the public. Built in 1738, and following seven generations of Drayton family ownership, the house remains in nearly original condition and has never been modernized.
