McCONNELLS, S.C. (AP) - Historic Brattonsville in York County is educating visitors on early settlers’ methods of processing and preserving a whole hog.

More than 20 historically dressed interpreters will participate in Hog Butchering Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The living history museum at Brattonsville invites visitors “around the hearth” for 18th-century Carolina backcountry cooking.

The event includes pork-processing activities such as rendering lard and stirring up a batch of soap. Cooking demonstrations feature chitterlings, sausages and bacon.

Historic Brattonsville in McConnells is a 775-acre historical site operated by the York County Culture and Heritage Commission. It features more than 30 structures from the 1760s to the late 19th century.
