Things to do for the Battle Enthusiast

Memorializing exhibit.

The following are offered to help you get a better understanding of this important battle.

Film - "Battle for Kings Mountain"

The park's 26-minute film is a good place to begin your visit. Produced by the History Channel, it gives a good overview of the battle. The film shows every 45 minutes.

Museum

Upon entering the exhibit area, you will see an original Ferguson Rifle, one of very few in museum collections. The museum is designed to replicate an old-growth forest, with several trees talking as they tell the story of the battle and the people involved. Many artifacts are displayed throughout the museum. It is a must-see!

Battlefield Trail

The 1.5-mile self-guiding walking trail allows visitors to see both perspectives of the battlefield. It starts by winding below the northern slope of the ridge, where a portion of the Patriot forces assaulted the ridge top. The trail then turns back and runs along the ridge where the Loyalists forces surrendered. Wayside exhibits around the trail highlight battle events. The Centennial Monument, U.S. Monument, and Ferguson's Grave are key features along the trail.

The trail is foot travel only, with the exception of motorized wheelchairs. Although the trail is paved, it is steep in places. Benches are located along the trail.
