Overview

Experience living history, including the African American story, at our 775-acre Revolutionary War site. Explore the Bratton Plantation, owned and lived on by three Bratton generations. Historic Brattonsville presents the history of the Scots-Irish and African-Americans in the South Carolina upcountry largely through preserving and interpreting the story of the Bratton community. With 30 historic structures from the 1760s to the late 19th century, we provide visitors with an opportunity to see the evolution of Southern culture and architecture in the Carolina Piedmont. Learn how people farmed the land, cooked their food and entertained themselves in the 18th and 19th centuries at this 778-acre living history museum. Historical farming techniques and day-to-day activities are presented by costumed interpreters year-round. Come explore the Huck’s Defeat Battlefield Trail and video documentary that bring to life one of the most important Revolutionary War battles in the Carolinas.

Great Educational experience for all ages. See local history unfold over a period of several generations for this colonial family farm/plantation. Bring your kids and plan your visit on a day they have reenactors and outdoor events scheduled.

The site of Hucks Defeat, this property has a lot of revolutionary and pre civil war buildings. It's quite a pleasant stop and staff are very helpful. Be sure to see the introductory movie, too.

A very well maintained historic site with great atmosphere and the re-en actors were informative. Not a great deal of walking as buildings have been moved into a central location on this 6000 acre plantation. Very enjoyable attraction that we were glad to visit. Will...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.
