Boone Hall Plantation is one of America's oldest still working plantations, continually growing crops for over 320 years. Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens is an antebellum era plantation located in Mount Pleasant.
The plantation includes a large Colonial Revival plantation house (1933–35) that replaces the lost original house on the site, a number of slave cabins or, several flower gardens, and the historic "Avenue of Oaks". The Avenue of Oaks is close to a one mile drive up to the house with southern live oaks on each side that were originally planted in 1743.
The house that stands now was built by Thomas Stone, a Canadian who purchased the land in the early 20th century. He wanted a "grander style" home than what was there, so he built the Colonial Revival-style house that stands there today
The earliest known reference to Boone Hall Plantation, which is 470 acres, was in 1681. The original wooden house was constructed in 1790. The house was a two-story, wooden house with a one-story front porch.
