Description - Kings Mountain State Park rests in a picturesque setting stretching along the South Carolina and North Carolina border. The park's "Living History Farm" preserves a collection of 19th century log and timber structures from the Piedmont region. Here, visitors can get a glimpse of the lifestyle of this area's early pioneers. Each September this farm is the site of the Pioneer Days Festival, which features crafts, music and muzzleloaders competition. Next to the park is Kings Mountain National Military Park, a prominent Revolutionary War battle site, and is easily accessible from I-85.
