This was a nice little stop on our way to Charleston. It is so peaceful and quiet. It really allowed you to experience a pace much slower than the hectic pace of life now. There was a lot of history to take in and it would have been nice with a few additional guides throughout the property to explain things... More

A very well maintained historic site with great atmosphere and the re-en actors were informative. Not a great deal of walking as buildings have been moved into a central location on this 6000 acre plantation. Very enjoyable attraction that we were glad to visit. Will take our guests there to see plantation life.

This historical spot is so picturesque and peaceful. We visited during the ag and art tour (at no cost which was lovely!) and thoroughly enjoyed walking the grounds and perusing the structures. There were volunteers in period dress to speak with and ask questions of, and even a few demonstrations. For the little ones there were a few animals and... More

I love history. The Southeast of course has tons of it to visit. This one happened to be close so we drove out. The original home dates back to the Revolutionary War, and the other Civil War. It's an at your own pace type of tour which is nice. They also do reenactments from time to time in the summer.

This is a case of the journey and the destination being of great reward. This historic site is in between Charlotte NC and Columbia SC. So the journey to it is rural and interesting, at least I thought it was. When you get there, it is a fascinating historic site dedicated to early colonial history. It costs only a few... More

A great place to explore if you're in to history and the Revolutionary War. Several special events throughout the year and I liked the Christmas Candle light tour. Great outdoor activities and great for families.

I would give this visit a poor but being it was 98 degrees I will give them a break, and assume the heat was the reason for lack of activities advertised. “Time travel with our costumed interpreters and do some of the tasks of long ago.

We came to see Brattonsville in June of 2015. It was very hot but well worth the stop. The lady at the registration gave us some tips about viewing the site that helped with the heat. We enjoyed the old building and the video. If you like history especially war sites you will really like this.

Went for the Christmas walk. Felt like we were stepping back in time. Enjoyed the acted scenarios from various eras. The scenes were quite educational as well.
