In 1743, the son of Major John Boone planted the live oak trees in evenly spaced rows that now formed to meet overhead on the way to the plantation. It takes two centuries for those oak trees to drape and meet branch to branch. Boone Hall Plantation is one of the oldest working plantations. It was known for its cotton in pecans. The plantation now also produces strawberries, tomatoes, pumpkins, and other fruits and vegetables. The plantation has been growing crops for about 320 years.

In 1955, the McRae Family bought the Boone Hall Plantation and furnished the house with antiques. Soon, the family started giving tours and has been open to the public since. Until now, the McRae Family still owns the plantation and it has preserved its 1800s atmosphere.

The Boone Hall Plantation has regular tours include going to the plantation through the Avenue of Oaks in which the Oaks drape over the entryway, an exhibit of the Black History in America, a tour of the plantation houses and a Plantation Coach Tour if the weather is good.
