Survey number HAER GA-6
Building/structure dates: 1886 initial construction
Significance: One of two yarn mills built on the banks of the Augusta Canal, the Dartmouth Mill still stands as one of the few remaining physical examples of Augusta's quest to become the "Lowell of the South." Architecturally, the mill represents the only remaining cotton mill in Augusta which has retained its original character by not bricking up its windows, thus retaining the visual relationship between the interior and exterior.
