Society Plans Brattonsville Trip
(April 1, 2002) The
Steele Creek Historical and Genealogical Society
will visit historic
in York County, SC on Saturday, April 27th. They will meet at
the Central Steele Creek Presbyterian Church at 9:30 that morning
and take the church's bus. They plan to take bag lunches and eat at
picnic tables on
the grounds there. (Put your name on your bag so you can put it in a
cooler. Drinks will be provided.)
Cost is $5 per
person (group rate) and $3 for students. That day is the Colonial
Living History Day. This 18th century event will focus on seasonal
foods and gardening. See an 18th century garden being planted, as
well as indoor and outdoor cooking styles!
