We went on Memorial Day and got to see some extra activities. There were period age children playing on the front lawn and they encouraged my children to get involved and play the games. Also three SCM (South Carolina Militia) soldiers were on duty and showing the children how to march with wooden muskets. The period of the plantation is... More

Although we only live a few miles away, this is the first time that we visited. This place was great! My 2 year old and seven year old loved it! It was not crowded (definite plus!). So much to see and learn. Highly recommend!

We have been members for many years and this is a great place to take a family. If you want the freedom of a self-guided tour, you are free to go where you please. If you want to learn some history, there are interpreters available that are very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. If you go on an event weekend, there... More

We went on a Saturday, and there was hardly anyone there which was lovely. We were able to thoroughly explore the area, read the information, and listen to the interpreters at our leisure. There are many original homes, buildings, and tools to see and enter and unlike other historic places, you can actually touch and interact with the surroundings. Some... More

We went to Brattonsville at 1000 and were the only visitors during the time we were there. It took about an hour to walk thru the area. Very interesting and well preserved. I enjoyed spending time watching the pigs and sheep.

I stopped by Historic Brattonsville on a whim when I had gone out for a drive to explore the area. If you like learning about history, this is a pleasant way to do so. I went in January so it was a bit cold that day but it was an educational experience ( being new to the South and South... More

Historial Brattonsville is set up in two distinct regions, colonial and antebellum. Starting at the Visitor's Center, the guide suggests you start with the colonial, take a break in the (thankfully air-conditioned!) second part of the Visitor's Center building to watch a short film, then continue across the highway with the antebellum portion. Our first stop was the Backwoods Cabin,... More

Many years ago, my son & I visited Brattonsville for their annual Christmas Candlelight Tour. As we're the "History Buffs" in the family, we left the rest of the family at home. We had a wonderful time. The experience is unforgettable. The grounds are illuminated with candle-lit lanterns and small fires. Various structures feature different themes and characters convey a...

On a day trip from Charlotte, we decided to check out Historic Brattonsville and were glad we did. The location is actually two locations in one: Revolutionary era and the antebellum period. We went on a Saturday when there is some "living history" going on - in this case, ladies were cooking in both areas and a gentlemen was showing... More

Interesting and seemed to be accurate for the time represented. Some buildings were moved from other locations and others from original locations or were constructed with the time period in mind. There was one house burnt in abt 2004 that wasn't restored and another two houses in need of restoration. Overall though good and interesting.
