Wednesday, was our final day of our Charleston Trip and we went to Boone Hall Plantation before we headed on home. Boone Hall Plantation is one of the oldest working plantations in North American. Mom and I went in the morning and stay to mid afternoon and still did not see everything the plantation has to offer to their guest. It is will worth the cost of admission to the plantation. They also offer a discount for Senior Citizens of 65+ and member of the Military and AAA.
They offer house tour of the main house which was built in 1936. It is a lovely house.
The gardens on both sides of the house are beautiful and the have signs telling you want some of the plants are.
This is the old smoke house. It is off to side of the garden by the house.
The Oak tree lined driveway is just wonderful to drive or walk down.
They still have nine of the original slave cabins. Each one has an different exhibit of Black History in American. At the last cabin you can see the performance of “Exploring The Gullah Culture,” which is full of tales I remember from when I was young.
You can see the building that housed the cotton gin. You will not be able to go inside because the building is unsafe but I bet it would be interest if you could.
They have some beautiful horses. The stables and field for the horses are for employees only but the horses do come up to people and let you pet them.
You can take a tour of the fields where they grow the crops. The tour guide we had made it very interesting and fun.
In behind the gift shop and cafe is a beautiful butterfly garden.
After our visit to Boone Hall Plantation, Mom and I made our way home. I would visit the plantation again and maybe check out some of the other attraction nearby it.
