The Friends of Scull Shoals seeks to foster education and outdoor recreation enjoyment by preserving and sharing the natural and historic resources of the Scull Shoals area from its base in Greensboro. The Scull Shoals area is part of the Oconee National Forest. Archaeological occupations in the area range from early Native American periods through historic times. The most dramatic historic structures are the remains of a cotton-mill settlement.

Historic Scull Shoals village began as a frontier settlement in 1782, and by the early 1800s had flourishing mills, boarding houses, stores, a large warehouse and store combination, a distillery, a toll bridge, and other enterprises.
