Historic Brattonsville is a 775-acre Revolutionary War living history site. Explore the Bratton Plantation, owned and lived on for three generations by the wealthy Bratton family. Experience a reenactment of the Battle of Huck’s Defeat, which took place on the grounds of Brattonsville 225 years ago. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the site features more than 30 historic structures open to the public. These “house museums” chronicle the development of the Carolina Piedmont from the 1750s through the 1840s. Historic Brattonsville is one of the few living history sites with African-American interpretation. Historic Brattonsville also is home to an award-winning Heritage Farm Program. Rare breeds of farm animals such as Gulf Coast sheep, Devon cattle and Ossabaw Island hogs are raised and cared for here, just as they were hundreds of years ago. Demonstrations of historical farming techniques and day-to-day activities are presented by costumed interpreters throughout the year on the Bratton Plantation.
