Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

Since the 1670s, the Magnolia Plantation has sat on the lush land at the edge of a fresh water reservoir that is adjacent to the river. Founded by the Drayton family, who had then recently immigrated from Barbados, the plantation has seen generations of Draytons come and go. They've also seen hundreds of springs, heralded by colorful azalea blooms, and hundreds of winters, marked by blooming camellias and trees with draping spanish moss.

Today, visitors to the grounds can immerse themselves in this history as well as in the 60 acres of lush gardens. The past comes to life on the award-winning "From Slavery to Freedom" tour, which takes patrons through the slaves' quarters. Visitors can also tour the plantation's gorgeous house, or drink in views of the gardens—either on foot, or on a boat cruise that winds down the Ashley River.

Customer Reviews

Magnolia Plantation and gardens is a beautiful location. We've been three times now, and still haven't seen all it has to offer. It's definitely a favorite destination when we come to town. The swamp tour is also a fun thing to do, though I believe how much animal activity you see all depends on the time of year you visit. If you're considering coming to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, you won't be disappointed.

Beautiful! This was my third visit and there is always something new to discover! Took the boat tour this time and John, the captain was a delight! So much history here, mixed with humor for a very enjoyable time. I'll be back!
