Boone Hall Plantation has been open to the public since 1956.
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 our 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 as 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 Plantation today spans 738 acres and is located at 1235 Long Point Road in Mt. Pleasant, SC, 8 miles from downtown Charleston. Our main office phone number is 843-884-4371.
