Watch history come to life this weekend at Walnut Grove Plantation. Spartanburg County Historical Association is hosting Festifall.

Charles & Mary Moore established Walnut Grove Plantation in 1767. During the Revolutionary War, the Moores, including daughter Margaret Barry, supported the Patriot cause. Local militia mustered at Walnut Grove prior to the Battle of Cowpens. Loyalist William “Bloody Bill” Cunningham raided the plantation in November 1781 and killed a Patriot soldier sheltered by the Moores. You will get to experience the chilling re-enactment of “Bloody Bill” Cunningham’s Raid on Walnut Grove during the festival.
