In the years before the American Revolution, Edward Musgrove saw his land as the perfect location for a gristmill. The nearby Enoree River provided power for the mill, and demand was high among Backcountry residents for means to grind their crops without having to make a trip that could take days to complete.

The British, however, also became interested in Musgrove's Mill. To them, the mill was a good central point for the movement of supplies, and its location at a river ford meant the British could establish control over transportation and communication in the region.
