Historic Brattonsville

Historic Brattonsville is a 775-acre historic site that includes a Revolutionary War battlefield. Each July a two-day event commemorating the Battle of Huck's Defeat (a revolutionary war skirmish) is recreated near its original battlefield site. The site features more than 30 historic structures, which may be toured and are also used during living history programs where costumed-interpreters relive the past by demonstrating a variety of programs.

Of interest to many visitors is Historic Brattonsville's role in the making of the Revolutionary War epic, The Patriot. Several buildings on site were used in the production.

We hope you enjoy our work.
