Help Fund Preservation Projects
The main house: 273 years and counting.
The Friends of Drayton Hall: 30 years and counting.
Friends are Friends forever!
The Friends organization has been key to Drayton Hall's success for thirty years. Once again, we are turning to our Friends for help. Make a donation to our year-end campaign and support our ambitious calendar of projects for 2012. With your help we hope to:
- Replace emergency electrical systems in the main house for safety purposes and to improve site security;
- Enlarge our educational programming to include interactive, in-class lesson plans to ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn about Drayton Hall, the South Carolina Lowcountry, and American history;
- Analyze our collection of archaeological artifacts to better understand the lives of the men and women who lived and worked at Drayton Hall throughout its 273-year history; and
- Continue to implement the Landscape Master Plan to identify and protect historic landscape features across the grounds.
