Historic Brattonsville, listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, educates tourists with self-guided walking tours along 775 acres of landscapes and landmarks that highlight South Carolina's crucial role in the American Revolution. More than 8 miles of Carolina Piedmont trails traverse past 30 historic structures, such as a replica Scots-Irish domicile and three generational homes of prominent Brattonsville figures. Catch glimpses of rare devon cattle and gulf sheep at Brattonsville's Heritage Farm Program, where you'll also learn about historical farm techniques and the ubiquitous moo-moo's that once graced Old McDonald's farm.

Culture & Heritage Museums

Culture & Heritage Museums safeguard the Carolina Piedmont's historical treasures and educate residents and visitors about the region's unique past. Instituted in the 1950's, York County's group of affiliated museums and attractions forms a multi-campus network encompassing a wealth of educational opportunities across various disciplines.

Each year, museumgoers view antique documents and photographs at the Historical Center located inside the McCelvey Center. They can get to know more than 1,500 natural specimens at the hands-on Naturalist Center inside the Museum of York County, and march through Historic Brattonsville's 775-acre Revolutionary War site. Locals can volunteer at the museums in fascinating roles, such as specimen preparers, who beautify avian exhibits by helping with taxidermy and surgical beak-lifts.

Our kids are 10, 8, 6, and 4. The olders one liked it more, but the younger ones were fine following around the older ones to explore the area and the different buildings.
