2015 Barton Historical Society Reunion & Fall Foliage Tour

The next annual meeting is scheduled for October 15-18, 2015 in the beautiful Up Country of South Carolina at the Hampton Inn in Gaffney, South Carolina.

October 15 is when everyone will begin arriving, and then on October 16 we will board a motorcoach for a full day of taking in the beautiful colors of changing leaves and visiting the two battlefields where our ancestors fought to liberate us from England. We will also visit the Walnut Grove Plantation and the site of Thomas Barton and Sarah Wilson's home. We have only blocked 12 rooms but will be able to add more at the group rate of $125.00 per night. It is important that you contact the hotel as soon as possible to make your reservations because this is the Fall Foliage season.

Please fill out the individual reservation form, and mail it ASAP with the tour amount of $52.00 per person to hold your space. The meeting agenda will appear in a future issue of our Newsletter and will include the mandatory business items as well as some interesting presentations. Look forward to it! But for now, MAKE YOUR RESERVATION and join your fellow Barton friends and cousins for a wonderful Up Country experience.
