With the help of L.R. Harrell, State 4-H Leader, construction began in 1938 by the Federal Works progress Administration.  By 1939, Millstone 4-H Camp was officially open and surviving their first group of young 4-Her's.  The site included a core dam with concrete spillway impounding an 18 acre lake, water system with deep well and water tower, 12 cabins, dining hall, craft shelter, caretakers house, staff house, 2 washrooms, cooks' cabin, and a staff house

After several successful years serving the 4-H youth leaders Millstone added a few new structures to the site: Recreational Hall (1952), 2 additional cabins (1952), farm shop (1955), pool (1979). 2005 saw the addition of our High Ropes Course with the help from Richmond County's Cole Foundation.  In 2009, with funding provided by the North Carolina General Assembly, all 14 cabins were completely upgraded with heating/cooling systems, bathrooms and a new sew system.  By 2010, the kitchen was completely remodeled with heating and air condititoning, 2 convection ovens, 10 gas burners, tilt skillet, warmer, ice machine and walk-in refridgerator and freezer
