Magnolia Plantation & Gardens

This world-famous plantation has been associated with the Drayton family since its founding in 1676. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it includes the country's oldest garden (c.1680), and a Reconstruction-era plantation manor with a famous collection of antiques. The garden features the Conservatory, filled with plants native to Barbados, a nature train tour, a petting zoo, wildlife observation tower, nature trails, an 18th-century herb garden, a Biblical garden, horticultural maze and antebellum cabin and an African-American history tour, "From Slavery to Freedom." The Audubon Swamp Garden offers 60 acres of the primeval beauty of blackwater cypress and tupelo swamp, traversed by bridges, boardwalks and dikes. A nature boat tour takes visitors through ancient rice fields.
