Overview

In 1681, Boone Hall Plantation began its long history in the Lowcountry. From the Boone family through the McRaes, the plantation's residents, black and white, all left a significant imprint upon the land as the plantation survived two wars and became the longest running brickyard in the area. As a center of tourism, Boone Hall embodies the romance of the South while providing the resources necessary to understand the network of lives that has inhabited the plantation for over 300 years. The plantation is tightly linked with the community and draws upon that relationship in its many educational programs. Numerous festivals are celebrated at the plantation, including the Strawberry Festival and Happy Jack's Pumpkin Patch, and many seek the unique landscape for their social gatherings. Through these relationships and events, Boone Hall will endure well into the future.
