Looms, hosiery machines and raw materials highlight textile production in the former mill store. Pictures, histories and maps document the mills in Alamance County and beyond. Located at Glencoe Mill Village, visitors will see how people lived when cotton mills were booming throughout the South. The mill village lifestyle comes alive with quilts, period clothing, artifacts and photos. A typical 1880s mill home with detached kitchen is adjacent to the museum. The “company store” exhibit features Glencoe Cotton Mill’s original scales and cabinetry. In the Glencoe Mill office area of the museum, changing exhibits are featured throughout the year.
