Architecture and Design in Mill Villages


Author(s):
Abstract:
Unlike northern mill villages, where there were rowhouses or apartments, mill villages in North Carolina tended to have detached, single-family dwellings with lots for gardens or animals. There was no indoor plumbing, and wells were shared. Other village buildings included warehouses, the company store, an area for recreation, a church, and a school.
