Notes
Survey number HAER NC-6
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-6).
Building/structure dates: 1880 initial construction
Significance: Glencoe developed at the time when the shift from water to steam power was seriously considered by cotton mill builders in Alamance County. Glencoe's existent mill houses, original mill buildings, and 1880-1894 water-powered machinery, make it one of the best preserved cotton mill villages in Alamance County. Although no early textile machinery remains, the village presents important evidence relating to the earliest forms and development of the textile industry in the county.
