Glencoe Mill Village, Burlington NC – Return to a Mill

Amazing piece on the restoration of Glencoe Mill Village in Burlington, NC!  Here is an account from someone that was there when it was ruins and has seen the incredible rebirth!

“Such potential—not to mention the tangible successes at Glencoe—gives hope to the architects of the heritage corridor that other towns will pay similar attention to their own at-risk mill buildings. But it’s not always easy to get people to see the value of what’s right in front of their noses.”
