Boone Hall Plantation
1235 Long Point Rd.

The symmetrical rows of oak trees lining the approaching drive to the Boone Hall Plantation give the impression of true southern essence. Planted 250 years ago by Major John Boone's son, the timeless “Avenue of Oaks” form a canopy over the entrance drive, creating an inviting path that leads to the rest of the estate. The land was originally acquired by Major John Boone through a land grant totaling 4,000 acres. The primary crop was cotton and a cotton gin house, circa 1853, still stands on the property. In the mid to late 1800's the Horlbeck family planted groves of pecan trees and the Boone Hall Plantation eventually became a leading producer of pecans. Other features of the property include; slave cabins, the dock house, butterfly pavilion, a smokehouse c. 1790, the commissary, and the stables built in 1940 by a Russian Prince still house horses.
