Founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, Magnolia Plantation has survived for centuries as one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. It predates the American Revolution, withstood the Civil War and has evolved into an unmatched home for Southern and international flora and fauna. It is the oldest public tourist site in the Lowcountry, and the oldest public gardens in America, opening its doors to visitors in 1870. Known for its Romantic Garden style, this sacred land has been visited by millions and appreciated by the rich, the famous, and the everyday nature lover.
