A Strong History That Dates Back to the 18th Century
As previously mentioned, Mills River enjoys a rich history in agriculture.
Although it wasn’t incorporated until June 2003, this community’s history actually goes back to the late 18th century.
In fact, many of the town's residents are direct descendants of the original landowners and continue to own that land.
In the early 2000s, Mills River was incorporated in order to gain control over development. Residents thought this was paramount to the community’s future. Now, these same individuals work hard to preserve the town's farmland, homes and businesses.
The town has also implemented regulations for developers since its inception in order to control how the land is divided and zoned.
