Brattin Woods is a beautiful hardwood forest with an open-water wetland. It was purchased from Margaret Brattin, the Estate of John Brattin in 1986. In 1997, a short nature trail was constructed by an Eagle Scout candidate. Later in 2005, to accommodate all who are interested in visiting Brattin Woods, Jeff Wells donated an area to host a small parking lot. A wetland overlook deck was added in 2009 by another Eagle Scout candidate and provides a great resting place for reading a book, watching the birds or just sitting and listening to nature.
