Celebrate the Fourth-of-July at Historic Brattonsville with 19th-Century Style Music, Dancing, Picnics and Games on the Lawn


McCONNELLS, SC- A celebration of Independence from King George takes place at Hightower Hall, the antebellum home of John Bratton, Jr. Fiddlers will play festive tunes of liberty and freedom with open calls to dance “Sellenger’s Round” and the “Virginia Reel” on the front lawn. The grounds will be set-up with wickets and mallots for a tournament game of “Pall Mall.”  Toys and games keep the young ones entertained while the big kids play an old-fashion ball game of “Rounders.”  Twenty historical interpreters dressed in period clothing offer cooking demonstrations, house tours and more. Our national holiday culminates with a reading of the Declaration of Independence on the front steps of Hightower Hall at 3:30 p.m. 


 


Picnics and blankets are welcome; the Friends of Historic Brattonsville will provide food for purchase.
