Context

Context of "Drayton Hall is unique among house museums. Preserved, rather than restored, the historic finishes speak to the viewer in the voices of the original craftspeople. This untouched authenticity evokes images of the seven generations of Draytons who considered this their homeplace and the enslaved people who made possible the plantation economy the house represents . . . The National Trust assembled an impressive team of conservators, engineers, and craftspeople for a two-year project to address Drayton Hall's most pressing conservation needs - to ensure that the fragile paint, plaster, and woodwork would tell this amazing structure's stories for generations to come. This film documents their progress and places their work in context of the people - slaveowners, slaves, and modern descendants - of Drayton Hall." - container
