History and nature come together at this 6,883-acre park that was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the late 1930s. The park features the Living History Farm, which offers visitors a chance to experience how South Carolina yeoman farmers lived during the 19th century.

This easy, 1.5-mile out-and-back trail is a unique feature in Kings Mountain State Park. In an area that is surrounded with historical relevance this trail provides an insight to what everyday life was like on a Carolina upstate farmstead during the revolutionary era. Highlights are a two-story farmhouse, barn, smokehouse, carpenter/blacksmith shop, sorghum mill and cooker, corncrib, cotton gin and several other small dwellings. The best time to hike the trail is in the spring, which is when all the lush vegetation is in full bloom. If you wish to extend your hike, the Kings Mountain Nature Trail is located nearby.
