Old Cotton Warehouse


After the Civil War, the land around Rock Hill, SC was filled with cotton but had no industry to convert the raw cotton to fabric.  In 1881, the Cotton Factory was built and the railroad soon followed.  Rock Hill’s population jumped from 800 in 1880 to 5500 in 1895.  The Mill ceased production in 1967 but there are still sites standing that can take you back in time.


When left to its own devices, nature will take back what was once its own.


I love when nature and industry meet.
