Welcome to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Magnolia has been selected as one of ''America's Most Beautiful Gardens'',
and is the only garden honored with this distinction in the State of South Carolina! Founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, Magnolia
Plantation has survived the centuries and witnessed the history of our nation unfold before it from the American Revolution through
the Civil War and beyond. It is the oldest public tourist site in the Lowcountry, and the oldest public gardens in America, opening its
doors to visitors in 1870 to view the thousands of beautiful flowers and plants in its famous gardens. So join us here at Magnolia
Plantation to experience the beauty of its gardens and its rich history today.
