A really old preserved home at a former plantation outside Charleston, Drayton Hall is a kind of historical window. Happened to meet a descendant of one of the plantation's slaves while there--she was visiting for the first time since she was a girl, and seemed overwhelmed emotionally.

Finally getting around to posting photos from time away recently...
This church was originally built in 1745, burned by the Brits in 1779, rebuilt in 1826, and burned again in 1865 by the Federal Army. Wise not to rebuild...makes a cool ruin, anyway.
