Avenue of Oaks: 1938

1938. "Boone Hall, avenue of trees, Mount Pleasant vicinity, Charleston County, South Carolina." 8x10 negative by Frances Benjamin Johnston. View full size.

 

Beautiful Boone Hall

In addition to "The Notebook", mentioned above, the hugely popular mini series "North & South" was filmed at Boone Hall as well as "Queen", an Alex Haley work starring Halle Berry.

Here's a shot from the same spot as the 1938 photo 74 years later.

Not much has changed

Not too much has changed in 75 years. Many young women will recognize Boone Hall as the location where "The Notebook" was filmed.

It's got moss appeal

The trees to seem to be saying "Hurry, this way out!"

Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens

A lovely place for anyone to visit, nowadays.
