Historic Brattonsville is a top-notch living history museum. The Bratton family, of Scotch-Irish descent, settled and was prominent in York County over decades. There are 18th century buildings, plantation houses, events virtually every weekend and school tours during the week.
Our grandchildren love it! The got to observe sheep shearing, then personally card and dye the wool. The oldest girl then braided herself a bracelet as a souvenir of the day. On another occasion, they learned how food was preserved, before refrigeration made our lives so much easier.
We have also attended special events there, like a reenactment of the Revolutionary War Battle of King's Mountain, and The Battle of Huck's Defeat, when a slave saved the owner of the plantation from capture, and enabled Col. Bratton to defeat the Loyalist troops.
Extremely family friendly.
