Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens, located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, is one of America’s oldest working plantations, with a history that dates back to 1681. Known for its picturesque beauty and rich cultural heritage, Boone Hall offers visitors a unique glimpse into the antebellum South. The plantation spans over 738 acres and features stunning landscapes, historic structures, and beautifully maintained gardens, making it a popular destination for history buffs, nature lovers, and those seeking a serene escape.

One of the most iconic features of Boone Hall is its majestic Avenue of Oaks, a nearly mile-long driveway lined with towering live oak trees draped in Spanish moss. This breathtaking entryway sets the tone for a visit steeped in Southern charm and history. The plantation house, built in 1936 in the Colonial Revival style, stands as a testament to the architectural elegance of the era. While the current house is a relatively modern reconstruction, it reflects the grandeur of the original structure and serves as the centerpiece for tours that provide insights into the plantation’s history and daily life.

The plantation is also renowned for its expansive gardens, which showcase a diverse array of flowers, plants, and antique roses. The Butterfly Pavilion and the seasonal U-Pick fields, where visitors can pick their fruits and vegetables, add to the garden’s appeal. Additionally, Boone Hall has preserved several original slave cabins, which have been converted into the "Black History in America" exhibit. This poignant exhibit provides a comprehensive and respectful exploration of the lives and contributions of the enslaved people who lived and worked on the plantation. Open year-round, Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens offers a rich and engaging experience, blending natural beauty with important historical narratives.
