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.
We happened upon this place by surprise! So glad we did, even though our time was limited on a Sunday afternoon. The caretakers at the visitors' center were kind and helpful. There were plenty of historic buildings to explore and beautiful wooded paths to follow. We are planning a return trip on a Saturday to have a guided tour!
Sheep shearing day was great. I watched a live presentation of shearing with scissors and toured the plantation. I've always wanted to weave on a loom and I was able to practice on a loom. I had so much fun that day and it's very affordable
Great piece of history. Walking through and around historic buildings. They have people doing what folks in the 1800s would have been doing. They are all knowledgeable and eager to tell you about the history. Highly recommend it. And the gift shop is awesome!
Cool site with lots of history, but not near as fun when most of the main buildings are closed and no interpreters on Sundays. Should be clearly posted on the web. Avoid Sundays.
