Tour of Revolution Mill

The Cone brothers started Revolution Mill in the 1890s after realizing that it would be easier to process the raw materials needed to make denim and other textiles closer to where the cotton was grown.

Revolution Mill is symboloc  of Greensboro’s history as a textile capital.  Historic preservation efforts led by Self-Help of Durham and architect Eddie Belk, and helping to turn the space into a business and residential center with a style that fuses industrial and modern.

Members of Preservation Greensboro tour the space, currently under construction, on July 23.  The stripped-down condition of the space allowed those on the tour to get a closer look at some of the original features.
