Historical note:
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 War Between the States. 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 house remains part of the mill ensemble and is now used as the mill's main office.
