Gather your group of 8, and get ready for a truly special private tour of historic Drayton Hall, followed by a delicious picnic lunch and champagne afterwards.

What could be more fascinating than experiencing this house with Patricia Lowe Smith, the Senior Curator of Historic Architectural Resources?

Trish has been with Drayton Hall since 2010, and she has been part of many new discoveries, in depth research, and hands-on preservation of the main house and outbuildings. Drayton Hall is one of the most remarkable houses in North America; in fact, it is the earliest and finest example of Palladian architecture in the United States.

Trish and her peers are constantly studying the historic structures for clues that tell us how the main house and surviving outbuildings were designed, built and used, how they changed over time, and what stories they have to tell about the people who lived and worked here. Because Drayton Hall has never been restored, Trish has had the rare opportunity to study materials and designs from every period in the house's history-all the way back to the time of its construction in the 1740s.
