Great Falls Mill

On New Year's Eve I took a ride up around the Rockingham, NC area and stumbled upon the ruins of the Great Falls Mill. The original cotton mill was built in 1838 and was burned by Union soldiers in 1865. It was then rebuilt in 1869 and remained in operation until 1930, after which it served as a cotton warehouse for a number of years until it burned again in 1972, leaving the shell that we see today.
