Significance: Located on the Augusta Canal, one of the few remaining power canals in the country, the Sibley mill continuously has used the canal to generate its own power; at present, it supplies between 50% and 75% of the mill's power. Located on the site of the historic Confederate Powder Works, the mill is a unique example of a 19th-century utilitarian structure designed in an eclectic architectural style. The mill has adapted to new technology and continued to enlarge the plant, additions and alterations trying to keep the original building's architectural integrity.
