This area honors local heroes of the Revolutionary War and recalls two famous battles, important in the outcome of the war, in which they fought. The “Overmountain Men” included the soldiers from Western North Carolina who met the enemy at Kings Mountain, near Charlotte, and at Cowpens, just north of Spartanburg, and were victorious.
Photographs of many of their gravestones are displayed just around the corner in Cemetery Hall. Also in Revolutionary Hall is a display cabinet with items of interest placed by members of the two local chapters of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR)-the Abraham Kuykendall Chapter and the Joseph McDowell Chapter. A brief history of each chapter is found on two wall hangings at the end of the Hall.
