We visited Drayton Hall on January 21, 2013 and were amazed at the history and beauty of this wonderfully preserved treasure. The caretakers have done a fantastic job of preserving this "house" and it appears as it was during the Revolutionary War. If you are going to visit hoping to see old furniture, you may be disappointed but if you want to see a glorious old southern mansion exactly as the family built it and lived in it, you are in for a rare treat! Architecture, old original mantels, columns, plaster-work, flooring, mouldings and trim work...ahhhh yes! They are working on the front porch and it is interesting to see how they repair and protect the past to ensure that the future will get to see it. Unfortunately the flanking buildings and stable fell during some of mother nature's rages and were removed but the old well is still there along with the "privy". The setting is unchanged and beautiful with huge old live oaks that were there when the house was being built...easy to step back in time in your imagination. Loved it!
