Significance: The Lenoir Cotton Mill, built about 1843, was one of a series of mills in the community along Town Creek, and the only one surviving in more than a ruinous state. They were built by William Ballard Lenoir, a prosperous farmer, manufacturer, miller, land surveyor, and merchant who settled here in 1810. His entire estate remained intact following his death in 1852, and in 1890 was taken over by a development company, the Lenoir City Company, who laid out the present town. At that time there were 1000 spindles operated in the mill. It was later converted to a grain mill, and now owned by the city, it has been unused for many years.
