Built in 1738, Drayton Hall Plantation is a prime example of Palladian architecture and has never been restored. Touring here truly reflects the period and lifestyle at the time. The stately home boasts extraordinary millwork and plaster work, but no furniture, electricity or plumbing. Visit the Stephen and Laura Gates Gallery to discover a rotating collection of decorative arts objects, as well as the Caretaker’s House, the Lenhardt Garden, and the interactive program Connections: From Africa to America. Take a self-guided walk around the gardens, and to the entrance of one of the oldest documented African American cemeteries in the nation still in use. There is an admission fee.
