Abstract:
Changes in the economy in the latter part of the 20th-century closed many historic factories. However, for some, like Edenton Cotton Mill in Edenton and Glencoe Mill in Burlington, closing was a new beginning. The mills and their villages were donated to Preservation North Carolina in 1995 and 1997 respectively. This organization sold the houses to buyers who will restore them following architectural restrictions and then occupy them. Mixed use development is planned for the mill buildings.
