Notes

Building/structure dates: 1880 initial construction
Significance: The Arista Mill complex is the oldest physical reminder of three forgotten elements in the history of Winston-Salem: Although the development and reputation of this city has been dominated by tobacco manufacturing, its industrial foundations were laid by the textile industry; Although the Moravian town of Salem is celebrated today for its craft traditions, it played an equally significant role in the industrial revolution and the transition to industries of mass production; Finally, although the contributions of well-known families such as Hanes, Gray, and Reynolds have long been recognized, the achievements of the Fries family of Salem in manufacturing, banking, and transportation were also vital to the development and growth of this Piedmont city.
