Architecture
Drayton Hall is one of the most remarkable houses in North America; in fact, it is the earliest and finest example of Palladian architecture in the United States.

We are constantly studying our historic structures for clues that tell us how the main house and surviving outbuildings were designed, built and used, how they changed over time, and what stories they have to tell about the people who lived and worked here. Because Drayton Hall has never been restored, we have the rare opportunity to study materials and designs from every period in the house’s history—all the way back to the time of its construction.
