Preservation
Drayton Hall’s preservation philosophy was groundbreaking for its time and is unique among historic sites today.

In order to preserve the seven generations of history within its walls, a radical decision was made to stabilize the house rather than restore it to a particular period, and to preserve it as it was acquired from the family in the 1970s. Historic preservation is a broad discipline, but at its heart is the idea that old buildings enrich our lives and deserve our good stewardship.
