Town of Fort Mill, SC

The town of Fort Mill was established in 1873. It takes its name from a colonial-era fort built by the British, and a grist mill on nearby Steele Creek. The Catawba Indians made their home in Fort Mill for many years. Scotch-Irish settlers began arriving in the 1750s and 1760’s and a small settlement soon developed. Fort Mill grew rapidly in the late 1800s as textile mills were established.

Fort Mill was the site of the last Confederate Government Cabinet meeting (1865). Jefferson Davis and the Confederate Cabinet passed through the area in their flight from Richmond in 1865. The last meeting of the full Confederate Cabinet was held at the White Homestead in Fort Mill. Fort Mill’s Confederate Park contains the nation’s only monument to slaves fighting on the Confederate side of the American Civil War.

Fort Mill was the home of Elliott White Springs, WWI flying ace, author, industrialist, and a member of the South Carolina Hall of Fame.

Today, Fort Mill is considered one of the fastest-growing parts of the Charlotte Metro Area. It is home to the Charlotte Knights AAA baseball team, their stadium – Knights Castle, and the Anne Close Springs Greenway which extends along Sugar Creek in the outskirts of the town of Fort Mill.

Fort Mill was recently named by Business Week magazine as the fastest-growing city in South Carolina. It is little wonder, with companies such as Continental Tire and music distributor Muzak headquartered there. The nearby cities of Rock Hill and Charlotte accent the growth of the local area.

A number of wonderful neighborhoods have sprung up in Fort Mill, due to a number of factors, including great schools, close proximity to Charlotte, and low taxes.
