Scope and Content Note
The York County Historical Commission was created in 1959 initially to preserve and maintain a former York County plantation at Brattonsville then in a dilapidated state. The Historic District was listed on the National Register in 1971 and named Historic Brattonsville. In 1997, the Museum of York County in Rock Hill, SC, and the York County Historical Commission merged to create the York County Culture and Heritage Commission and has broadened its mission to “communicate and preserve the natural and cultural histories of the Carolina Piedmont, inspiring a lifetime of learning.” The York County Historical Commission Records consist of by-laws, general correspondence, financial records, application forms, and various records relating to the restoration of the Brattonville Homestead and other activities of the York County Historical Commission.
The records of the York County Historical Commission were donated to the Archives on November 18, 1980 by Wade Fairey, Director of Historic Brattonsville.
