Drayton Hall

The Drayton Hall Preservation Trust is a privately funded nonprofit organization responsible for the operation and administration of Drayton Hall, A National Trust Historic Site.

Drayton Hall’s main house is an icon of colonial American architecture and identity. The oldest unrestored plantation house in America still open to the public, it is the nation’s earliest example of fully executed Palladian architecture. Its African American cemetery is one of the oldest in the nation, documented and still in use. Surrounded by live oaks and bordered by the historic Ashley River, Drayton Hall offers daily guided house tours and programs, customized private tours, and educational programs that bring to life the history of the site and the stories of its people for visitors of all ages. Drayton Hall is a National Historic Landmark and is open to the public daily, except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day, and New Years Eve and Day. Visit our website for more information:
