Brief DescriptionA National Trust Historic Site
CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionDrayton Hall is the oldest unrestored plantation house in America that is open to the public, a National Historic Landmark and a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. After seven generations, the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and numerous hurricanes and earthquakes, the main house remains in nearly original condition. Built between 1738 and 1742, the entire site — including the historic grounds with its ancient live oaks, broad vistas, vanished structures, and rare period features — serves as a testimony to America’s heritage.

From our renowned house tours, African-American cemetery, to our marsh walks, educational programs and locally sourced museum shop, you will find so much to do at Drayton Hall. We are open to the public daily, except Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day, and New Years Eve and Day. For more information, visit the Drayton Hall web site at
