Abstract:
Alamance County is OUR STATE magazine's featured county of the month. During the colonial era, the county, then a part of Orange County, was the site of the Battle of Alamance on May 16, 1771, a fight between the forces of Royal Governor William Tryon and dissatisfied colonists called Regulators. Orange County was split in 1849, and Alamance was formed. Two industries figured prominently in the county's development--textiles and the railroad. Glencoe Cotton Mill operated from 1880 to 1954. In 1997 restoration began on the site, and thirty mill homes have been restored and sold. Elon University in Elon is a nationally recognized school. The Burlington Manufacturer's Outlet Center and the new Alamance Crossing, which opens in 2007, attract shoppers from across the state. Four wineries in the county and one in Guilford County have formed the Haw River Wine Trail to promote the wine industry.
