The Preserve was acquired through multiple grants to help tell the story of the Overmountain Men, a rag-tag group of area militia that chased down a British general during the Revolutionary War and won a piviotal battle at Kings Mountain.alex ford1

The route the militia took during that campaign passed right trough the Preserve property. In fact the old road bed that is now the Preserve's main trail is believed to be the exact location of their trip.

Today the Preserve is a quiet country respite that includes picnic areas, a trail to the Green River and a preserved mature forest.
