In the summer of 1780, a group of roughly 300 loyalist partisans and 200 British Provincials set up camp at the home of Edward Musgrove on the Enoree River. Come join us at Musgrove Mill State Historic Site for a Living History Campout and experience a little bit of what life was like for the soldiers of the American Revolution. Re-enactors will be on hand to give fire starting, cooking, and even weapons demonstrations. A guided hike of the home and mill site and stories told around the campfire will also be part of the program.
Visitors will be asked to bring all of their own camping materials. Typical camping supplies include tents, sleeping bags, food, cooking supplies, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and suitable clothing. Bathroom facilities, camp grills, and picnic tables will be made available throughout the program.
Contact Musgrove Mill State Historic Site for more information about the program or to make a reservation. Reservations are required at least one week in advance.
