Visited the beautiful old historic Boone Plantation while in Charleston. The old house is beautiful and full of historical period pieces. A tour guide gives a 45 minute presentation which is a terrific history lesson, even though he is a bit corney. A definite place to visit while in Charleston. The mile long oak entryway is amazing. Check out the movie, The Notebook, which was partially here.

This was the first plantation that I have ever toured. There were several activities that people could participate in. The historical information was interesting, the tour guides did the best they could. There was talk about slavery, but I didn't feel like there was an attempt to accurately talk about the degradation and horrors of slavery. The tour guides almost made slavery seem like a benign thing. I'm not nitpicking, but the whole reason that plantations flourished in this country is because of slavery.

Your most memorable takeaway from this trip will be the avenue of 1000 oaks. The approach road is fantastic and blew my mind away with horses on one side and 200-300 year old slave cabins on the other.

The plantation is a working one vs some of the others which are now only for tourism purposes. They have multiple events through the day so plan your day accordingly.

We did a tour of the wonderful mansion and followed it up with a tour of the entire plantation on the truck where they show/talk about the vegetables and fruits currently being grown.

It's a wonderful experience and a must do whilst in Charleston.

A great plantation to visit. We went in August, so it was hot but we still really enjoyed it. Several movies have been filmed here including The Notebook. The lane leading to the entrance of the plantation is lined with majestic 250 year old oak trees that have survived hurricanes and an earthquake. They are magnificent and perfect for a photo. The house is not from the antebellum era. It was built in the 20th century, but is filled with period antiques, and the house tour is interesting. There is also a gorgeous garden right by the house that is loaded with beautiful and colorful flowers. The most interesting part of the visit is the presentation on Gullah Culture that the slaves developed. It sheds light on their language, songs, even medical treatments. So enlightening. The original slave cabins have survived and are an eye opening experience to visit. There is a cafe building with cold water bottles for sale when you get thirsty. Bathrooms need improvement. They need more of them and to be updated.

We've toured the Bone Hall house multiple times, but Ed Hansen's version of the tour has by far been the most enjoyable! His humor and the continuity of humor and knowledge during his presentation brought refreshing new lawyers to the rich history of the home and the property as well. We will absolutely be back again, and look forward to another of Ed's tours!
