Capt Amis hosted many famous figures including John Sevier, James Robertson, Andrew Jackson, Daniel Boone, Bishop Francis Asbury, Andre Michaux, and numerous revolutionary heros. The Eatery has 2 decks that overlook the historic dam and waterfall. The old Mill ruins are still standing and witness to an era gone but not forgotten.
