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.

We absolutely love Brattonsville. The candle light tours before Christmas is the highlight to our holidays. Everybody is so welcoming and knowledgeable. Definitely worth following and enjoying events they have!

The people who are working here are very friendly and informative. There is plenty to learn from a visit to this location. It is really a walk through history, with buildings on site spanning over a hundred years of craftsmanship. I definitely recommend it to anyone that has a few hours to spare for this self guided walking tour. They... More

This Saturday Brattonsville will host it's Christmas event and surprisingly good actors will re-enact what it was like to be in both the Revolutionary and Civil War eras in SC on a real plantation. With fire pits along the way the visitors will go from building to building to see how the owners, the slaves, teachers and children all lived... More

We went on a Sunday and there were no crowds at all. It's a neat place to visit and learn about the history of the area. Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to take about an hour (maybe longer?) to visit the park.

Williamsburg is wonderful as is Charleston but neither betters Brattonsville in their historical interpretations and this place is a whole lot more bang-for-the-buck! No crowds and talking with Bob Beemis, full-time historian is a treat you will never forget. Run! Don't walk....to the next event at breathtaking Historic Brattonsville!

Attended the Brattonsville "Spirits and Stories" event, that included a guided candlelight walking tour of the grounds with five storytellers spaced along the pathway telling historical stories with spooky Halloween themes. Compelling stories, excellent storytellers, very well done. And really reasonable prices.

We can't say enough about Historic Brattonsville! The property is HUGE, over 700+ acres complete with farm animals, historic buildings galore, a battlefield, trails, and reenactors. History comes alive in this amazing park. Everyone was professional, friendly and very knowledgable! We spent 3-4 hours and didn't see everything we wanted to but had other places to be. We will be... More

Nice walk to view buildings. Buildings could have been better marked but we figured them out. I would recommend that if you can visit when more is going on. Like the special events: Children’s Day on the Farm (March), Battle of Huck’s Defeat (July), By the Sweat of Our Brows (September), Piedmont Pottery Festival (September), Civil War Reenactment (October) and...
