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. Brattonsville includes the site of a Revolutionary War battle and the Bratton Plantation, owned and lived on by three generations of the Bratton family. Featuring more than 30 historic structures from the 1760s to the late nineteenth century, the site provides visitors with an opportunity to see the evolution of Southern culture and architecture in the Carolina Piedmont. Historical farming techniques, heritage breed livestock, and day-to-day activities are presented by costumed interpreters year-round.
