Driving on the long scenic driveway to Boone Hall with it's huge, old Live Oaks is awesome! By visiting you can almost feel & see the way it was back centuries ago. The house tour was good and the lady giving the tour was very informational on the history of the plantation. The slave quarters was so interesting, touching and honoring those who worked and lived here. Also I was glad to see the pics of those who I read about who worked endlessly to free the slaves for many years, some for more than 40 years. The cotton mill & cafe were closed for renovation, but understandable for this time of year. We enjoyed the open-air coach tour and the driver gave us a very interesting look of how it was on the plantation now and then. A very good visit!
