Steele Creek Historical Society Plans Brattonsville Trip

(April 1, 2002) The Steele Creek Historical and Genealogical Society will visit historic Brattonsville 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!

Contact Mike Brown at 704-588-4805 or Linda Blackwelder at 704-588-6575 or by e-mail at llblckwldr@worldnet.att.net for details. Let them know if you plan to attend. They need a count for the bus.

Brattonsville is a 720-acre living history village and farm. The Bratton family settled here about 1774, and the Revolutionary War Battle of Huck's Defeat was fought in the area on July 11, 1780.
