Pre-Revolutionary plantation home in close to original condition with African American cemetery

Drayton Hall is the oldest surviving example of Georgian Palladian arhitecture in the United States and one of the only pre-Revolutonary houses that remain in close to original condition today. Drayton Hall's story spans 3 centuries of American history and 7 generations of the Drayton family and the African Americans were lived and worked here. Today you can tour the house (unfurnished) and take part in programs about life on the plantation or visit the African American cemetery on site.
