Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Drayton Hall is being transformed with construction of new facilities, which will improve the visitor experience and enhance stewardship of historic resources while expanding interpretation and public programming.
Drayton Hall Reimagined is a special fundraising campaign to enrich the Drayton Hall experience. An initiative of our visionary Board of Trustees, Drayton Hall Reimagined is an opportunity for you to help us preserve, educate and inspire at Drayton Hall.
Your philanthropic leadership is necessary to meet our ambitious $6.1M goal. While slated to open in early 2018, five-year commitments will help make this project a reality.

Charlotta Drayton (1884–1969) is remembered as an early preservationist who made the critical decision to never modernize the main house with lights, air conditioning, or other comforts because she understood the value of authenticity and recognized how rare it was even in her lifetime.
