Beautiful property and beautifully preserved buildings and homes. The Homestead was a real treat. The house is wonderfully taken care of and the rooms displayed a unique look into the antebellum world. It is a self-guided tour so you have the freedom to go at your own pace and see the property in whatever order you wish to. I originally was going to only give it three stars because I felt there wasn't enough information on and in the buildings, but the actors at the McConnell home and garden who gave a living account of what life would have been like for the average Joe were fantastic. They explained everything they were doing, what they were making, planting and all about the heritage breed animals still being raised on the plantation. We had hoped that there would be more people doing this throughout the tour, but sadly there was not. But because of these amazing people I bumped my review back up to four stars. I still consider this a worthwhile trip.
Absolutely fascinating!! I LOVE old historical places, but this one was much bigger than most of the others Ive been to. There were only a few buildings unable to go in, due to preservation. The setup, the detail was just so good!! Definitely recommend.
If you love history, you must come here! There is living history going on, with interpreters and live activities, on many of the days. There are plenty of options throughout the year for fun events (such as historic battle reenactments, 18th century cooking demonstrations, crafts, games, etc.). I highly recommend Historic Brattonsville for a trip back in time.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. I will have to return to see the rest of it . A storm had blown through the previous day and damaged some of the park plus I was short on time. I would love to see the reinactment of the battle fought there. Great bit of history!
We arrived too late to see the entirety so we focused outside. That was informative but we expected more interpreters there. There people were present and all three were friendly. One knew very little about the history or times and tools. The sheep had their lambs very recently and we're fun for our children to watch. We would definitely recommend the battle of Hucks defeat trail to learn about the historical significance of the village.
