Notes
Survey number HAER SC-19
Building/structure dates: 1902 initial construction
Significance: This brick, rectangular, four-story structure is architecturally significant as a relatively intact textile mill building from the turn of the century. It has a twin pyramidal-capped clock and bell tower that contains elements of the Romanesque Revival style, such as arched entrances, yellow brick pilasters and arches, and corbelling. A large clock face on each of four sides of the left-hand tower, and the pyramidal roof has flag poles. The segmental-arched window openings are now bricked in.
