Textile Heritage Museum at Glencoe, North Carolina




The Textile Heritage Museum is located at the 1880's Glencoe Mill Village, which embodies the distinctive characteristics of mills and mill housing of that era.

The museum is housed in the former company store and office of the now defunct Glencoe Cotton Mill.  It was created for the preservation, study and enjoyment of our rich Southern textile heritage extending from the early nineteenth century into the twenty-first.

Come and learn about the beginnings and growth of cotton mills "down South," water-power, railroads, weaving, hosiery and fashions, mill village life and today's industry in the Piedmont.
