The house was built in the 1900's and is the fourth house on the property. The trees lining the drive into the plantation are real though. The trees are impressive and are originals. The slave houses are originals too and the slave history they tell are an important part of history. The rest of the plantation is more modern than... More

The slave cabins and the Gallah performance are outstanding. The cabins have audio narratives and artifacts. Each of the cabins featured a different aspect of slavery and standing inside these actual slave cabins, you understand their lives so much better. There is a twice a day performance of Gullah - an oral history and song one-woman show - which was... More

Like many others we visited Boone Hall because of the movie The Notebook! It was a great experience. We were met at the main house by our tour guide who was dressed in period costume (her name escapes me) She did a wonderful job telling us about the plantation, the house, the history, the families that have lived there over...

We have visited all the Charleston Plantations but thought this one had the best Gullah performance. Also, had the best self guided history tour of the slaves who worked on the Plantation. Boone is a Working Farm and you can tour and see all the crops they are growing. The Plantation Home was built in 1936 and had beautiful Christmas... More

Based on other reviews, I chose this plantation as the one to visit in the Charleston area, and I'm glad I did. It had so much to do - house tour, bus tour of the grounds, multiple talks, self-guided tours of the gardens and the numerous exhibits in the slave cabins (which apparently very few plantations still have standing). An... More

Yes I agree it was a little pricey, $21 with the AAA discount, however it was so pretty! Could have had a longer tour of the home, but people actually live there. The grounds were just beautiful with the lined driveway of oak trees. The gardens and all the flowering trees, I loved! The Cotton Gin, was closed for renovations,... More

Nice setting and tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. Well preserved site. Make sure you attend the presentation on the slave experience and Gullah culture. It was very informative and the presenter was excellent. The entry drive is scenic and so is the landscape.

Amazing drive through the trees; just like you'd expect from a southern plantation. While from the outside the house appears antebellum, it's not, having been built in the 1930s. but still a lovely place. You can only tour the downstairs. The real "tour" is the slave houses that have oodles of fascinating information.Also, be sure to ride the "tram" around... More
