The importance of this hall lies in the fact that it has been declared as the “finest of plantation houses all over US”. This is at present the most important part of the Magnolia gardens and plantation estate. This house was built by John Drayton separately as he knew that he will not possibly inherit the property of the Magnolia gardens being the third son of his father.

The house is now opened to the public as an old hall where you can take a look of old plantation house interiors. The lifestyle of these upscale people was a bit different from the middle class people and that is what the center of attraction is here in this hall. The interior décor, the plaster of the walls, the wooden floors and balconies are all very uncommon out here. You should definitely spend some time here in this house and enjoy the past of this city life.

Drayton Hall, Charleston Reviews - Write a Review

  • Mack was a great tour guide. He's 5 stars for sure. The actual Drayton House is amazing too. The grounds, while sparse in comparison to some of the other plantations was still beautiful. When they finish their expansion in the coming months I'm sure it will be 5 stars. Definitely a must do!

  • Excellent tour guide Annika knew her stuff and very well spoken. Loved the old house

  • The grounds and home are beautiful. The best part was how Mack, the tour guide is so knowledgeable and entertaining. Everything is setup nicely and preserved. Great future plans.

  • One of best plantations I have visited, along with Whitney plantation in Wallace, LA. The introductory discussion was a great to establish connection, and to educate tour takers. Highly recommend!

  • Loved seeing and touring the house and old cemetery. Amazing stories of this century old Plantation and how it came to be and how it has survived.
