Recycled Mill Villages

Record #:
Industrialization in North Carolina quickened in the 1880s, led by the textile industry. Textile mills sprang up in rural areas and towns, thereby leading to the development of mill villages. In this article, Eyre traces the broad outlines of how the functions and character of former mill villages have been altered by the widening economic influences of part of the Piedmont crescent.
