Located across the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge in Mt. Pleasant, about ten miles from downtown Charleston, antebellum Boone Hall Plantation, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of the oldest working, living plantations in the United States. The plantation's Avenue of Oaks, first planted in 1743, is a picturesque three-quarter mile drive lined by majestic live oak trees, forming a tunnel of seemingly sculptural branches embellished with cascading Spanish moss.
