Bridgestone/Firestone Donates Loray Mill

Record #:
Built in 1902, with later expansion in 1921, the Loray Mill in Gaston County was known as the world's largest textile mill under one roof. The mill was saved from demolition when the owner, Bridgestone/Firestone, donated it to Preservation North Carolina in December 1998. Rehabilitation plans include using it for a civic center, office-retail complex, and condominiums. Plans are also underway to nominate the 600,000 square-foot mill as a National Historic Landmark.
