The mission statement for Drayton Hall a National Trust site is centered on the preservation of the main house. Why is this site spending a large amount of money on 18th century bird prints and there is still no visitors center or museum? I was a member of "Friends of Drayton Hall" and have done research at this site. The history of he Drayton family is now presented in the main house utilizing poster boards on easels. The interpretation of slavery "African Connections" is held outside near the gift shop. This site over the past 20 years is less and less inclusive. No African American docents? Events for the wealthy who donate large amounts of money to the site? I would like to know if The National Trust has any oversight at Drayton Hall? I no longer support the National Trust as it too caters only to the very wealthy and elite in America.
