Hightower Hall at Historic Brattonsville

Hightower Hall is the first building seen by most visitors to Historic Brattonsville, an 800-acre living history museum. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, Hightower Hall provides a historic venue for weddings, small conferences, corporate functions, bridal portraits, receptions and community meetings.

Originally called “Forest Hall,” the Italianate house was built for John Simpson Bratton, Jr., and his wife Harriet Rainey Bratton between 1853 and 1854. The building was updated for modern use through a rehibilitation project to modernize amenities which included the addition of ADA accessibility to the first floor of the house.

Grand sweeping lawns under a canopy of oaks provide the perfect backdrop for gatherings of up to 350 people. The house also provides over 4,000 square feet of comfortable event space.

McCelvey Center

The McCelvey Center is currently closed for repairs to the Lowry Family Theater and rentals are not available at this time. Although work has begun, a definitive timeline for completion of the project has not been finalized. Please check back for future updates.

Museum of York County

Take your meeting, banquet or cocktail party to 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.

Available for rent are the Museum’s auditorium, upstairs classroom, and planetarium.
