Fort Mill began as a gift from Native Americans in the 1700s to whites that were passing through the area. Before the Revolutionary War, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Spratt spent a night among the friendly Catawba Nation, were invited to live there, and given a large tract of land. Spratts of this line still live in Fort Mill, according to the City website and a government building on Main Street is called the Spratt Building.
