Carolina Mill, North Carolina
The Carolina Mill, a cotton mill, was built in 1869 on the Haw River. Its name "Carolina" makes internet research difficult. It is surrounded by a small mill village, also named Carolina. The mill village is occupied and well maintained. The mill building has not been in use since the 1960s but is secured and still seems to be at least marginally maintained. It is in excellent shape and does not seem to have been altered since the 19th century. Portions of the old water works including the powerhouse are extant and accessible. Just down river from the Carolina mill is the Big Falls Mill, built in 1880, and now operated as Copland Fabrics #1. Just up river is the Glencoe Mill and mill village.
