The Drayton family genealogy is perhaps one of the most interesting (and complicated) in the south (and north). Drayton Hall circa 1738 is the only Ashley plantation to survive in its original state. It has never been renovated.. This peaceful property stands the test of time.

Come stand in one of the most infamous spots in American history. A place that temporarily lodged thousands upon thousands of African slaves that were transported to this country. during the 16 & 17th centuries.
