Thursday (April 1st), we got up and drove to Boone Hall Plantation. As we were driving into the plantation, sitting in line to buy our tickets, Vaughn remarked how the guy a few cars ahead of us handed the attendant a coupon. Vaughn asked where our coupon was, teasing me because I love to coupon! Having the laptop already running, I looked one up online — I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t thought to check for one before! I hadn’t brought the printer, but we told the lady about the coupon and she gave us the $2.50 off of each of our tickets! Hey, $25 is $25!!! anyway, we thought that was really nice!
Boone Hall is one of the oldest working plantations in North America. It still keeps approximately 100 acres in crops to help keep the taxes down. The plantation is privately owned, and the owners live in the house when they are in town.
