Boone Hall is one of America's oldest working, living plantations, established in 1681 by Major John Boone. The present plantation manor house dates to 1935. The famous avenue of oaks, a three-quarter mile drive lined with massive Spanish-moss draped live oaks, dates to 1743. Bordering the avenue of oaks are nine original slave cabins, which housed the plantation's house servants and skilled craftsmen. This cluster of cabins, known as Slave Street, is one of the few remaining intact in the Southeast and the only brick slave street in the U.S. Boone Hall and its grounds were prominently featured in the TV mini-series "North & South" Civil War epic by John Jakes, and Alex Haley's "Queen," among others. Crops have been continuously grown and produced here for more than 320 years. Peaches, strawberries, tomatoes and pumpkins as well as many other fruits and vegetables are still grown, with U-Pick fields open in season. The main modern market on Hwy. 17 is now open for business.
