When you buy something from Drayton Hall’s Museum Shop, you do more than make a purchase. You support the preservation of Drayton Hall. That’s because the proceeds help fund our most critical projects—from preservation efforts and architectural research at the main house to the education programs that reach 10,000 students each year.
The Drayton Hall Museum Shop and its new exhibit space being introduced in 2015 are housed inside one of the site’s two surviving historic outbuildings. The wood-frame caretaker’s house was an African American dwelling built in the late 1800s. Originally two rooms, the structure was later enlarged with a shed-roof addition at the rear. The partition that once divided the two rooms has long since been removed, but traces of the central brick fireplace can still be seen in the floor.
Today, visitors have an opportunity to learn firsthand about the building’s history and to find out even more about the history of Drayton Hall and the Lowcountry through a new exhibit space and the accompanying selection of books, regional foods, and Drayton Hall-inspired merchandise.
