The Overmountain Victory Trail Association was formed in 1975 to gain recognition for the route the Overmountain men took to the Battle of King’s Mountain South Carolina. The OVTA’s mission is to Protect, Preserve and Interpret the route of the Campaign to the Battle of Kings Mountain.
Our protection efforts include everything from maintaining the Pemberton Oak; a 600 year old oak tree that was the mustering point along the trail, and the only living remnant from the 1780 campaign; to working with civic organizations to develop the trail in their community.
