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. You may pump the billows at the forge, finger spin wool into yarn or... More

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.

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
