Been here several times since I was a kid. Very informative, beautiful, and eye opening. Currently performing restorations on several of the buildings but I'm very much looking forward to coming back and seeing them once they've been restored. Great for families, kids, and people of any age interested in a piece of the South's more darker history. Definitely check out the restored store and the exhibit on James Williams and Reconstruction.
Very nice living history experience. Their living part isnt as lively as say Colonial Williamsburg but the fact that it is at all impressed me. They have some nice walking trails too. A very good experience I would recommend and I will be returning to as well. If possible, try to get there early, it can take some time to get through if youre thorough and really like to take in as much as you can.
Adventure is Out there
Here we find one of the first British defeat battlefield, along with buildings and animals from the 1780s. Best to go on a Saturday for plenty of period show and tell. Many buildings currently under restoration, but fun to see. Great walking trails along the river to spend the day and family picnic.
Brattonsville is a place of silent history including a battle ground and plantation buildings. Wonderful trails lead you through the area on a self guided tour. The gift shop has books, cups and other collectibles to choose from. Brattonsville is well worth your time.
Even though they are just coming back from the difficult interruption of the Covid-19 pandemic, my Grandson and I found it to be a fun, educational place to visit. Would recommend it for families. The old timey demonstrations of quilting, cake making and yarn dying were very good.
