Event Description:

This annual family event focuses on farm life in the 18th and 19th centuries.  It is a fun historic learning opportunity that offers a wide variety of hands-on activities which demonstrate some of the work and play of our Carolina Piedmonts ancestors.  Candle-dipping, blacksmithing, food preparations are just a few of the activities that will be available for young and eager hands to help with.  Come and see our newborn lambs, and pet other farm animals, too.  Pony and wagon rides will be available for a small additional fee.  

This year, The Gullah Lady, professional storyteller Sharon Cooper-Murray, will entertain kids of all ages with the rich heritage of the Gullah culture. 

The Friends of Historic Brattonsville will offer food concessions for sale, so come and spend the day with us exploring the past.
