The Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens is an antebellum era plantation located in Mount Pleasant, Charleston County, South Carolina, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The plantation includes a large Colonial Revival plantation house (1933–35) that replaces the lost original house on the site, a number of slave cabins or cottages (which were occupied by sharecroppers well into the 20th century), several flower gardens, and the historic “Avenue of Oaks:” a nearly one-mile (1.6 km) drive up to the house with southern live oaks on either side, originally planted in 1743.
Boone Hall plantation sits on Wampacheeoone Creek in Christ Church Parish about 10 miles from historic downtown Charleston.

Jim’s Accessibility Comments:
First, you’ll need a vehicle as the Plantation is about a 30 minute drive (11 miles) east of downtown Charleston. The Plantation House is not accessible. There are 6 steps to enter the house and a few steps in each room within the house. The tram has 6 steps to enter and there is no ramp. The slave cabins have 2 steps to enter. The grounds are basically fine sand and grass and thus not the best rolling surface. There are 3 wheelchair accessible restrooms on the grounds.
