Boone Hall Plantation 


Boone Hall Plantation

Boone Hall Plantation was founded in 1681 by Major John Boone and purchased by the McRae family in 1955. The Plantation is one of America’s oldest working, living plantations. They have been continuously growing and producing crops for three centuries. As you enter Boone Hall, you will travel down the avenue of oaks. The oaks, draped in Spanish moss, are over two centuries old and are one of the most picturesque spots on the plantation. The Georgian designed house was built in 1936 and guided tours of the first-floor showcase what a house would have looked like in the 18th century. Eight original slave cabins are one of the most unique features of the plantation. The cabins have artifacts and audio exhibits that help depict what daily life was like for the slaves on the plantation. In addition to the house tour and the slave cabins, you can also take a 40-minute ride around the property in an open-air coach, and then take a self-guided garden tour that showcases beautiful roses that are over 100 years old. Allow about 3 hours to view everything on the plantation. There are a number of special events that take place at Boone Hall each year that affect the normal plantation tour operations so always visit Boone Hall's website and check the calendar of events before planning a visit.
