The Textile Heritage Museum is
located in the former Company Store and Office Building in the
Glencoe Mill Village. The 1880 building was purchased for the museum
in 2004 and is an ongoing restoration project.
The museum highlights the
textile history and mill villages of Alamance County, the Piedmont, and beyond.
It features history and
machinery of the textile industry from the cottage industry to the
present, village life, a large
company store exhibit, and many other exhibits of interest.
There are exhibits from
currently operating local mills with product displays.
