Hightower Hall at Historic Brattonsville
Hightower Hall is the first building seen by most visitors to Historic Brattonsville, a 775-acre Revolutionary War living history site. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Historic Brattonsville features more than 30 historic structures open to the public.
This grand historic building houses a 500-seat theater and is home to the Historical Center of York County and the Southern Revolutionary War Institute. The original circa 1856 building, built to house the Yorkville Female Institute, burned around 1900. Rebuilt in 1903, the building then served as York Graded School. In 1951, it was renamed York Elementary School, and in 1973 it was named McCelvey Elementary School in honor of George C. McCelvey, principal from 1912 to 1948.
Museum of York County
Take your meeting, banquet or cocktail party on an African safari at the Museum of York County. The Junior Welfare League of Rock Hill opened the Children’s Nature Museum in Fewell Park on August 4, 1950. In 1965, construction of a new building on Mount Gallant Road was completed, and in 1976, the museum was renamed the Museum of York County. Today, the museum houses one of the largest collection of mounted African animals in the Southeast.
