Inside a great American colonial house: Drayton Hall. It almost needs no explanation. Built on the banks of the Ashley River, it is arguably one of the finest surviving examples of Georgian architecture in this country. Preserved in an elegant state of decay, the woodwork has sustained only two coats of paint in almost 300 years. The house now stands empty, its furniture long ago scattered (though a few pieces may be seen at the Heyward-Washington House and the Charleston Museum).
It is one of my favorite places.
