Built as a home for John Drayton in the late 1730s, Drayton Hall is a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation that tells the story of life in the American South for a host of different perspectives. Much of the place's history is interpreted through its architecture, oral history, archaeology, and historical records. For those persons who cannot make it to Charleston to see the Hall in person, its excellent website offers some fine online exhibits for the Web-browsing public. Visitors will want to peruse the exhibits, which include information about Drayton Hall during the American Revolution and a virtual tour of the grounds. For those who are interested in making the trip to South Carolina to visit the Hall, there is ample information about the public hours of the grounds, along with back copies of the in-house newsletter, _Interiors_.
