Closed Week in Photos

Every year, Drayton Hall closes its gates to the public so that our staff can work on the house and grounds. We are closed February 3-7 for house cleaning, preservation work, and grounds maintenance. Check out the photos below to see our progress so far.

Sweeping

Sweeping an 11,000-square-foot house is a tedious job, but you will hear no complaints from Tara!
