    The town of Fort Mill was established in 1873, taking its name from a colonial-era fort

    built by the British and a grist mill on nearby Steele Creek. The Catawba Indians made

    their home in present-day Fort Mill for many years. Scotch-Irish settlers began arriving

    in the 1750s and 1760s and a small settlement soon developed. Fort Mill grew rapidly in

    the late 19th century as textile mills were established. After many textile mill shutdowns

    the town continued to grow rapidly and became a major suburb of Charlotte.



    Fort Mill is located in a humid subtropical climate.

    This means that the city experiences four distinct seasons, although the

    variation between the seasons is not as pronounced as in other parts of the

    United States. Generally, daytime maximum temperatures in the summer are

    around 90 °F (32 °C), with nighttime low temperatures of approximately 70 °F

    (21 °C). In winter, daytime maxima average around 50 °F (10 °C) while nighttime

    low temperatures are near 30 °F (−1 °C). Occasional readings as high as 105 °F

    (41 °C) are seen, reaching a high of 108 °F (42 °C) in 2007 or as low as −5 °F

    (−21 °C) in 1989. Summers are generally humid and prone to thunderstorms, while

    winters are rainy with sleet and occasional snow. Snow might fall during the

    winter, but usually does not accumulate or persist as ground cover. Fort Mill

    experiences rainfall related to tropical cyclones but is generally too far inland to

    experience damaging winds. Fort Mill has not had any direct hits from any

    tropical systems since 1989, when Hurricane Hugo devastated the area.



    Thirty minutes in rush-hour traffic from Charlotte, N.C., this once drowsy textile mill

    town is growing up. Town's northern boundary abuts Charlotte's city limit.


    While much of the nation is experiencing a downturn, Fort Mill and York County continue to report rising real estate prices. In the first six months of this year, Fort Mill was up 3 percent from the same time last year, while neighboring Tega Cay, was up 15 percent, according to the regional Realtors’ association. Homeowners who sell do so with an agent and receive close to their asking price. If needing a good Agent: you will really like Kim. Very knowledgeable on Fort Mill, being she has lived there for over 15 years.
