Pilot Mill Interior

Don’t know if you have ever gotten a chance to go in the Pilot Mill, but it is really a great building. Take a look at this website to see some of the before and after photographs – truly amazing. I love when architectural history can remain and buildings be repurposed.

Here is a little history about the Pilot Cotton Mill I pulled from Wikipedia:

“Originally built between 1892 and 1910, Pilot Mill served as a textile mill until the late 1970s. At its peak, Pilot Mill housed 425 looms, 11,000 spindles, and 300 workers that transformed 5,000 bales of cotton into 8 million yards of cloth per year. After production ended in the late 1970s Pilot Mill served as a warehouse but soon began to significantly deteriorate. Pilot Mill has since been restored after the City of Raleigh threatened condemnation in 1997. When the buildings were restored in the late 1990s, all salvageable materials were used. When these materials were not available they were either custom-made or salvaged from a similar mill in South Carolina.”
