Join one of our historic interpreters on a walking tour of the immediate Glencoe Mill Village to include mill houses, the company store, administrative offices, mill machine shop and one of North Carolina’s largest textile sculptures. We’ll share with your group the beginnings of this 74 year operational textile mill which specialized in plaid flannel materials and how significant the textile industry was to the building of the local economy following the American Civil War.
If you have a group of 10 or more people please make a reservation for a guided tour at least two weeks in advance.
Walking Tour lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour. You can then follow with a self-guided tour of the museum (4 museum gallery rooms).
