“Exploring The Gullah Culture” is a unique presentation where that difference can be experienced first hand. Boone Hall is the only plantation in the Charleston area to present a live presentation of this unique culture adapted by African slaves.
The mansion that exists today was built in 1936 by Canadian ambassador Thomas Stone. Guided tours of the first floor allow guests to see how this Georgian-designed home blends recovered materials and antique furnishings to recreate an atmosphere that would have surrounded a Coastal Carolina planter’s family and his guests.
View the Black History in America Exhibit in a self-guided tour of 9 original slave cabins. You can also join a tour guide for a presentation of a historical look at the living quarters, relics, and lifestyle of slaves that lived at Boone Hall.
