Went to this Plantation as part of a school trip; the history of the Bratton family's involvement in the Revolutionary War is interesting and there are plenty of historic structures to explore on the self guided tour. The interpreters were really knowledgeable!

Interesting place and a whole lot of walking. No one works on Sunday who can talk about the plantation and no one in period dress. It was a self-guided tour of the planation and buildings.
