21st Century Pig Pickin’

Celebrate the re-opening of Hightower Hall

McCONNELLS, SC – Help celebrate the renovation of Hightower Hall, the 1856 Italianate Villa at Historic Brattonsville, at a 21st Century Pig Pickin’, 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12.

Live “high on the hog,” tasting barbecues from traditional Southern to barbecue with an Asian flair. Enjoy live music and entertainment and lawn games for children. Tour the newly renovated structure.

Hightower Hall is located at the northern entrance to the historic site on Brattonsville Road. The house was built for John Simpson Bratton Jr. and his wife Harriet Rainey Bratton in 1856. Then called “Forest Hall,” it was the seat of a significant nineteenth and twentieth century plantation.

From restoration of windows and shutters to lead paint removal, from installation of heating and air conditioning to replacement of the standing seam metal roof, the grand home has been updated and will be used in educational programs, for special events and private meeting and party rentals.

COST $25 for members, $30 for non-members, $5 for ages 12 and younger. Advance tickets required. Contact Michelle DiEduardo, 803.329.2121, ext. 113.
