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.

A historic home that was originally 6,000 acres with homes, out buildings, vegetable gardens, etc. There are people quilting, gardening in 18th and 19th century gardens who explain their role in their period. There are hiking areas, a small gift shop, and restrooms. Good for all ages. Not especially stroller or wheelchair friendly. $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and... More

It was a memorable experience with my daughter and her class. Saw the war not as a Yankee but also as a rebel. Looked at the severity of war and all the lives lost, unbelieveable. saw actors reinact a scene from the war and also the doctors and how they helped the wounde\d.
