Boone Hall Plantation

Thursday, April 30, 2015













If you ever happen to find yourself down South in Charleston, a Plantation tour is a MUST! On Sunday we had perfect weather (sunny and 88) and drove to the Boone Hall Plantation for a tour of the grounds filled with history.

If I can't convince you with these photos maybe this will: In 1743, the son of Major John Boone planted live oak trees, arranging them in two evenly spaced rows. This spectacular approach to his home symbolizes southern heritage and will take root in your memory for many years to come. It would take two centuries for the massive, moss-draped branches to meet overhead, forming today's natural corridor and a scene that NBC Daytime television says is "a must see stop on any trip to Charleston, S.C."
