Nice Plantation 4/14/2006

Drayton Hall is a very nice plantation and I think they have done the house justice in keeping it true to itself. I have to say that the staff was the least friendly out of the hwy 61 plantations. The gift shop was run by "society ladies" and their attitude was just that. I loved walking the marsh area trail, but otherwise there was just not a great deal of stuff to explore there. If I had guests in town and had to choose one plantation to take them to, this would not be the one! more

Unique Experience 3/17/2006

Unlike other plantations, Drayton was kept in its original state, with no furniture and minimal modern appliances. The legend has it that it survived the Civil War because the owner at the time hung up a white pox flag, thus preventing any destruction from the war. Although it is not for everyone (due to the lack of furniture and the minimalist reconstruction of the house), the architecture is amazing, and the small details such as the children's height chart still displayed on the wall and the pillars in the basement that have been there for well over a century add to the history of the house. The host was very informative and interesting and really added to the tour. more

an amazing house, takes you back in time 9/11/2005

The thing that makes Drayton Hall unusual and a must-see is that it survived the war in 1865 when other plantations around it were burned. It has never had the modern conveniences added like some of the others. You can walk the grounds after your tour. There is a lot of nature and wildlife here. You'll see all kinds of birds and animals, along with beautiful gardens. This is one of those places if you had to choose between several places this would be one of the ones to see while in the area. more
