Ledbetter Mill


Author(s):
Abstract:
In January 1881, Thomas Benson Ledbetter purchased one-hundred acres and with his nephew, John Steel Ledbetter, as a partner, built South Union Mills in Rockingham, North Carolina. It was in operation until 1894 when the mill burned due to a lightning strike. The mill was rebuilt as Ledbetter Manufacturing Company, sold to Parsons Manufacturing in 1979, and later renovated into today’s upscale Carolyn’s Mill Condominiums.
