The Textile Heritage Museum, housed in the fully restored Company Store and Management offices, stands as the primary representation of the textile heritage of Alamance County and North Carolina. The Glencoe Textile Mill, which was among 10 original mills in Alamance County, operated from 1880-1954, producing a vast variety of plaids and other fabrics that were shipped worldwide. Today, this 6,000-square-foot museum exhibits some of the early looms and textile machinery of this bygone era, fabric samples, military uniforms, photographs, documents, and journals, early office equipment, and artifacts of the mill workers and the community of Glencoe. Hundreds of other unique treasures related to the textile industry are among the other artifacts on display. Museum gift shop and theater, plus walking and hiking trails.
