Background

A former textile mill operated from 1926 through 1983. The former textile mill was built in 1925 and was the first plush fabric mill in the state of South Carolina. This textile mill was a key business in the community, providing higher than average wages for generations of families. Unfortunately, the downturn of the U.S. textile industry in the 1980’s led to the company’s decline, eventually causing the textile mill to go out of business in 1983.

The redevelopment of the former textile mill consisted of remediation, historic preservation, and the creation of a pocket park for the city. This redevelopment will bring new jobs and businesses to the area while preserving the site’s important cultural and historical features.
