The Textile Heritage Museum is located at
the 1880's Glencoe Mill Village, which embodies the
distinctive characteristics of mills and mill housing of that era.
The museum is housed in the
former company store and office of the now defunct Glencoe Cotton
Mill. It was created for the preservation, study and enjoyment
of our rich Southern textile heritage extending from the early nineteenth
century into the twenty-first.
Come and learn about the beginnings
and growth of cotton mills "down South," water-power, railroads, weaving, hosiery and fashions,
mill village life, and today's industry in the Piedmont.
The museum is open on Saturdays and Sundays,
Admission is free
