Revolution Mill Walking Tour (Wednesday Evening)
August 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
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. The complex is in the process of a massive restoration project by the Self Help Credit Union to reinvent the landmark as a mixed-use development by star-archiect Eddie Belk.
This tour meets in front of 1200 Revolution Mill Drive. The tour will end at Natty Greene’s for Preservation & Conversation social time! Wear comfortable shoes! This event is FREE (Beers are not!).
