Boone Hall Plantation

Boone Hall is one of America's oldest plantations, established in 1681 by Major John Boone. The famous Avenue of Oaks, a breathtaking three-quarter mile drive lined with giant live oaks draped with Spanish-moss, dates to 1743. The plantation manor dates back to 1936. Bordering the avenue of oaks are nine original slave cabins, which housed the plantation's house servants and skilled craftsmen. This cluster of cabins is one of the few groups of such historic structures remaining intact in the Southeast and the only brick slave street in the U.S. Boone Hall and its grounds were prominently featured in the TV mini-series "North & South" Civil War epic by John Jakes, and Alex Haley's "Queen," among others. Crops have been continuously grown and produced here for more than 330 years. Peaches, strawberries, and tomatoes as well as many other fruits and vegetables are still grown, with U-Pick fields open in season. The main modern market on Hwy. 17 is now open for business.
