Notes
Survey number HABS NC-201
Building/structure dates: 1835 initial construction
Significance: The Battle Home was constructed in 1835 by Benjamin D. Battle, a son of Joel Battle, founder of Rocky Mount Mills. Rocky Mount Mills was a major supply of material for the Confederate Army during the Civil War. In 1863 Federal cavalry burned the mill but the officer in charge spared the home because he and the superintendent of the mill were both Masons. The home is now used as the mill's main office. It has been carefully restored to preserve all of the old detail.
