Revolution Mill and Mill House Walking Tour
August 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$5
The Revolution Mill complex represents an important chapter in the development of Greensboro as one of the largest cities in North Carolina. The mill was a keystone of brothers Moses and Ceasar Cone’s textile empire, established in Greensboro after observing opportunity in the rapid expansion of the southern textile industry. Revolution Mill was named for the “revolutionary” idea of manufacturing flannel here in the American South. Today, the massive Revolution Mill complex is in the process of an extensive restoration project by the Self Help Credit Union and C. T. Wilson Construction to reinvent the landmark as a mixed-use development by designs composed by star-architect Eddie Belk.
This tour will examine some of the most recent restoration and adaptive reuse phases as an exclusive access opportunity!
This tour meets on the Docks and will take 60 to 90 minutes. Enter at Textile Drive entrance, bear right and park at the base of the six-story building, then walk around the building to the other side and look for us! We will meet on the Docks between the tallest building and the main mill. Wear comfortable shoes! This event is limited to 15 attendees.
