The Houses and Filming Locations from the Movie "The Notebook"
Boone Hall Plantation served as Allie’s family’s summer home in The Notebook. The antebellum mansion is located in South Carolina near Charleston and has the distinction of being one of America’s oldest working plantations, growing and producing crops for over 320 years.

Sweetgrass Baskets, Edisto Island, SC
Sweetgrass basket weaving was brought to the Charleston, South Carolina region by slaves who were brought from West Africa. The art form has been passed from generation to generation. You can watch artisans at work and purchase baskets at the Charleston City Market. You can also drive along the Lowcountry roads and find roadside stands such as this one in Edisto Island, South Carolina.

Five Great Southern Gothic YAs
B&N recommends 5 Southern Gothics: You can find southern sans Gothic (see: Magnolia, by Kristi Cook) or Gothic set elsewhere (April Genevieve Tucholke's Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea), but there's something about the combination of the two that creates the perfect storm, often literally.
