Historic Brattonsville

The weekend of September 11 Donna and I visited Historic Brattonsville near Rock Hill, SC. It is an area containing around 30 structures dating back to the 1760's and was the site of the Battle of Huck's Defeat in the American Revolution, one in which a group of Patriots defeated a much larger and superior group of British. We had a great time roaming the grounds and checking out all the various buildings, ranging from slave cabins to kitchens, barns, etc. to large homes, many of which we were able to enter and explore.

Moss on shingles.

This must be quite a cool place for a cat to live; we saw 4 around the grounds.

In addition to the resident cats, there are a few sheep, horses, pigs, and chickens living on the grounds.

We took the long way home and stopped at the Monticello Reservoir to watch the sun set; Donna snapped this awesome shot.

One of mine, not nearly as good as Donna's.
