Events

Stand in the shadow of Drayton Hall, the meticulously preserved 270-year-old plantation house perched on the Ashley River, as candlelight winks at the weatherworn bricks and Gullah spirituals soar through the night air. The melodies are as old as the grove of stately oak trees, and the entire evening is rooted in living history. This is Christmas in Charleston.
