I: Overview

This section provides an overview of the history of Historic Brattonsville, a community that began in 1766, when a Scots-Irish family settled in present-day York County. Over time, the family prospered and the estate expanded far beyond the expectations of their ancestors.

After viewing the resources from the Overview, be sure to continue your exploration through the remaining resources (Buildings & Artifacts and Daily Life), and imagine what it must have been like to live during this time! We hope these resources will provide insight into the lives of the people who settled in the area and made its growth possible.
