The Friends of Drayton Hall

Annual, unrestricted gifts from Friends provide essential support for the preservation of Drayton Hall each year. In fact, everywhere you look—at the preservation craftsman repairing the house, the archaeologist digging in the ground, or an educator teaching a group of students—you’re seeing Friends' dollars at work.

“I've loved Drayton Hall since I first laid eyes on it, sometime around 1979 or 1980. Because I've seen the house and property under such professional care since those early days, it's easy for me to help support Drayton Hall.”

—Valerie L., St. Petersburg, Florida
