Hog Butchering Day Celebrates the Whole Historic Hog
Visit Historic Brattonsville
I don't know about you, but I like my pork historic
. The living history museum at Historic Brattonsville embraces the Carolinas' porky past on Saturday, Jan. 11 with Hog Butchering Day, in which 20+ historic interpreters will prepare a pig in a variety of ways.
Throughout the day, interpreters will be butchering the hog; rendering lard; making bacon, sausage and chitlins; making soap; and cooking the pork in various ways.
You can eat some pork, too: Gardner’s Barbecue will also be available from 11:30 a.m. until it runs out; and there'll be smoked pulled-pork sandwiches and fresh country sausage sandwiches, too.
The piggy festivities run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11. For more information on Historic Brattonsville, which is located
in York County, visit chmuseums.org
Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for kids aged 4-17; and free for kids 3 and under.
