Notable Neighborhoods in Wake Forest NC – River Mill
River Mill is one of the oldest manufacturing mills in North Carolina and has seen many transitions in it’s lifetime which has spanned the decades! From the first recorded use in 1855 this mill has had many uses including granite mill, powder making factory during the Revolutionary War, paper mill, cotton mill and lastly an incredible restoration in the mid-80s turning the old mill into condos.
This 23 acre site bounded by the Neuse River and Falls Lake is rich in wildlife, tranquility, history and natural beauty. The backdrop of the dam and falls provides natural beauty beyond compare. There are three separate buildings that comprise River Mill; The Annex, The Mill and The Woods. Opportunities are rare to own a condo within these buildings.
River Mill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Just a few of the amenities offered are shared flower and herb gardens, outdoor grills, gazebo, horseshoes, basketball goal, and plenty of parking!
