Getting Rid of Mill Villages

Record #:
Mill village refers to the community developed in conjunction with any mill. Traditionally mill owners built and maintained homes for their employees to rent and supplied these makeshift villages with deputy services. Mr. Ferrell of Raleigh proposed a new plan of individual ownership of mill homes and the property to alleviate the mill owner's financial burden and to instill mill workers with a sense of pride in owning a home.
