Myself and 3 friends enjoyed...

Jeanne L | Oct 2019

Myself and 3 friends enjoyed the docent-led tour of Drayton Hall and the Port to Plantation lecture and slide show. We were impressed with our docent - a young history grad who knew her material and delivered it in a polished yet friendly manner.

It would have been more...

It would have been more interesting if had people of color sharing information about slave life and treat ment.
