Boone Hall in Charleston, SC is interesting. But it has nothing to do with this house. This house is not old. Not by the standards of everything else on the grounds. 80 years or so. That’s nothing. Just some rich folks getaway.

That said, I’m glad I visited. I had the opportunity to see the historic slave housing on the grounds and to learn a bit about the conditions those poor people lived in. I also took the opportunity to buy a sweetgrass basket from the artist who was making them on the grounds. She did beautiful work and was quite a bit cheaper than the folks in the city.
