Boone Hall Plantation is located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. It's a former 18th century cotton plantation (the current building on the property was built in 1939, so it's not the original plantation. The slave huts on the property, however, are original.) The gardens around the plantation are lovely. Visitors will see formal gardens, an antique rose garden with roses that are over 100 years old (I had no idea roses could live that long!), colorful azaleas, and a beautiful live oak alley with Spanish moss hanging from the trees. (Here's a bit of trivia that I learned last week on my trip to South Carolina: Spanish moss is named after the beards of the Spanish settlers.)
The grounds are open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 - 6:30, and Sunday from 12:00 - 5:00. Admission for adults is $20.00, and for children, $10.00. Cost of admission includes the Plantation House Tour, Slave Street and History Tour, Garden Tour, and admission to the Butterfly Pavilion.
