History Lesson at Magnolia Plantation

Magnolia Plantation is perhaps one of the most exquisite plantations in all of South Carolina. Dating back to 1679, Thomas and Ann Drayton established Magnolia Plantation, and we're the first of many owners spanning throughout 300 years. Most notably, Magnolia Plantation transferred ownership following the death of Thomas Drayton, in 1825. His brother, John Grimke Drayton, who was 22 at the time, took over Magnolia Plantation and truly brought it to it's full potential. With the desire to please his loving wife, Julia, John established an amazing array of gardens throughout Magnolia Plantation, which continue to blossom and expand to this day. Focusing on the soft and natural beauty of the South, John truly created a sought-after environment, perfectly intimate and remote!
