The McRae Family purchased the plantation in 1955 and it was Mrs. McRae who furnished the house with antiques and began giving tours. Today, the McRae Family still owns the property, and they continue to make improvements to the plantation so that ours visitors can experience what plantation life was like. As you tour each site on the plantation our knowledgeable staff will help you understand the day to day activities of those who lived on plantations as well the history of the people who lived here at Boone Hall.
Boone Hall Plantation was founded in 1681 when Englishman Major John Boone came to Charleston and established a lucrative plantation and gracious home on the banks of Wampacheone Creek. The family and descendants of Major Boone were influential in the history of South Carolina, the colonies and the nation. The McRae family is proud to present that history, covering over 330 years, on a daily basis.
Boone Hall is also one of America's oldest working, living plantations. We have been continuously growing and producing crops for over three centuries. Once known for cotton and pecans, we are still actively producing strawberries, tomatoes, and pumpkins, as well as many other fruits and vegetables for our visitors to enjoy. The U-Pick fields are open in season. Our main modern market on Hwy. 17 is now open for business.
