Living History at Historic Brattonsville

January 20, 2017 - Posted in Local by Kaitlyn Cannon

Historic Brattonsville is a 775-acre Revolutionary War site located in York County, South Carolina. It is the site of the Bratton Plantation, which was owned by the Bratton family. The Bratton family came to North America in the early 18th century and ended up settling in present-day York County in 1766. The Historic Brattonsville site now consists of original buildings as well as reconstructed buildings, which were made and decorated to reflect the historical influences of the time.

Walking on The Bratton Plantation, it's easy to imagine what it would be like to live during the 18th and 19th centuries. Historical interpreters are on site everyday weaving, cooking, and tending to cattle. Historic Brattonsville is as interesting as it is informational, and the album below acts as a walk through history.
