See this historic plantation that has been dubbed the top plantation in the Charleston area.
Founded in 1681, the Boone Hall Plantation is a must-see in South Carolina. The current reconstructed building was established in 1936 and has guided tours of the first floor. Antique furnishings help depict what it was like when the plantation was in operation back in the day. Today, this plantation is a working farm. If you want to see it all, book a tractor tour. These tours last about 40 minutes, and the guides tell the history of Boone Hall and show you around the farm.
Other things you can see at the plantation include the original slave cabins. Inside, feel free to take a self-guided tour and see the historical exhibit on display. The garden is another main attraction. Be sure to stop and smell the roses; this beautiful garden features antique rose bushes that have been there for over 100 years. Stop by the butterfly pavilion too while you're here, there are several different species, and you can see them thrive in this natural habitat. Children and adults of all ages are welcome to visit Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens. They are open Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm, and Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm.
