Boone Hall Plantation has been open to the public since 1959.

The McRae Family purchased the plantation in 1955 and it was Mrs. McRae who furnished the house with antiques and began giving tours. Today, the McRae Family still owns the property, and they continue to make improvements to the plantation so that you, the visitor, can experience what plantation life was like in the 1800s. As you tour each site on the plantation our knowledgeable staff will help you understand the day to day activities of those who lived on plantations as well the history of the people who lived here at Boone Hall.

Boone Hall is also one of America's oldest working, living plantations. We have been continuously growing and producing crops for over 320 years. Once known for cotton and pecans, we are still actively producing peaches, strawberries, tomatoes and pumpkins, was well as many other fruits and vegetables for our visitors to enjoy. The U-Pick fields are open in season. Our main modern market on Hwy. 17 is now open for business.

Frommer's Review

This unique plantation is approached by a famous Avenue of Oaks, huge old moss-draped trees planted in 1743 by Captain Thomas Boone. The first floor of the plantation house is elegantly furnished and open to the public. Outbuildings include the circular smokehouse and slave cabins constructed of bricks made on the plantation. A large grove of pecan trees lies behind the house. Note that Boone Hall is not an original structure, but a replica; die-hard history purists may be disappointed in the plantation house, but the grounds are stunning and very much worth visiting. Boone Hall Farms opened in 2006, selling produce grown on the plantation and offering seasonal pick-your-own crops.
