On July we went to Boone Hall Plantation it was very interesting for us, we wanted to see that nice plantation, specially the house, so beautiful, do you remember the film North and South with Patrick Swayze?? if you didn't watch it, you should, it's not a modern movie, it's about two friends, one northern and one southern, struggle to
maintain their friendship as events build towards the American Civil

About Boone Hall Plantation (discovery south

Boone Hall is one of America's oldest working, living plantations,
established in 1681 by Major John Boone. The present plantation manor
house dates to 1935. The famous avenue of oaks-a three-quarter mile
drive lined with massive Spanish-moss draped live oaks, dates to 1743.
Bordering the avenue of oaks are nine original slave cabins, which
housed the plantation's house servants and skilled craftsmen. This
cluster of cabins, known as Slave Street, is one of the few remaining
intact in the Southeast and the only brick slave street in the U.S.
Boone Hall and its grounds were prominently featured in the TV
mini-series "North & South" Civil War epic by John Jakes, and Alex
Haley's "Queen," among others. Crops have been continuously grown and
produced here for more than 320 years. Peaches, strawberries, tomatoes
and pumpkins as well as many other fruits and vegetables are still
grown, with U-Pick fields open in season. The main modern market on Hwy.
17 is now open for business.

After visiting Boone Hall, we went to the park to see some crafts, but it was very very hot and we were tired , so we went back home to watch some soccer :)

Some pics from our visit to the Plantation. As you see i have a lot of pics to scrap yeeeeeee.
