President Herbert Hoover declared the battlefield at Kings Mountain to be “a place of inspiring memories.” It is the place that changed the course of history for South Carolina and the United States. The Chronicle Marker at Kings Mountain National Military Park is the second oldest battlefield monument (1815) in the United States. The park preserves the entire battlefield site in a natural setting evocative of the Carolina frontier of 1780, which commemorates one of the most important Patriot victories of the American Revolution. The park includes a 1.5 mile battlefield trail that is a walking-only trail, a film presentation, and museum exhibit area with battlefield artifacts, a gift shop and bookstore, and a hiking trail. There is a backcountry campsite approximately three miles from the visitor center, and horse trails are also available for visitors who bring their own horses.

The White Home 258 E. White Street, Rock Hill, SC 29730 803.329.1020 • www.historicrockhill.com Built in 1839, in what is now the historic East Town District, the White Home was one of the first homes constructed in Rock Hill, South Carolina. In 2005, after five generations of the White family caring for this treasure, Historic Rock Hill purchased the property and began a five year restoration effort. The present-day site is a house museum that spans more than three-acres and includes the main house and out-buildings. Today this beautiful three-acre site includes a house museum with a collection of historic photographs and documents and a gift shop featuring local artisans. The home is also the base of operations for Historic Rock Hill and it serves also as a venue for community events.

The last time the building was used for entertainment, was in 1968, since then, it has gone through many “metamorphosed” incarnations: as a movie house, a hotel, a storage building and as a teacher’s supply shop. Owner, Paul Finnican saw the unrealized potential and architectural integrity of the 100-year old building, coupled that with his desire to provide a venue for the singer-songwriters in this particular area and proceeded to purchase and personally renovate it. After completely redoing the interior and adding some nice touches, this theatre has been brought back to her well deserved status as a place to enjoy the arts.
