Significance: Lincoln Mills built this six-room frame duplex home ca. 1925 as part of the company's New South Village three blocks south of the mill complex. Each room in a three-room dwelling unit had a fireplace, with running water and toilet facilities at the back of the lot in a separate outbuilding. Indoor bathrooms were added ca. 1950. Original exterior walls were finished with stucco over wooden lath; interior surfaces were wooden. In 1918 Lincoln Mills of Alabama succeeded Abingdon Mills, which was incorporated in 1906, itself a successor to Madison Spinning Mill built in 1900. Lincoln Mill expanded operations, employing 600 workers in 1920, and grew to be the largest textile mill in Alabama by the time a bitter labor strike forced the mill to close in 1955. Most workers found employment in local aerospace industries. The mill complex burned in 1980.
