Plantations were once a common fixture around Charleston, South Carolina, which is home to a wealth of other important United States historic sites and attractions. The sole surviving whole intact Ashley River plantation, Drayton Hall is a favorite choice of visitors to the area. The stunning Georgian house has survived hurricanes, armed invasion and civil war duress. Not once updated or modernized, the stunning house and property grounds take you back to a time and place when rice and cotton were king, Charleston was a booming wealthy Southern agricultural center, and the seven generations of Drayton craftsmen built works of architectural art.
