Building: Morgan, Drury Mill (Monroe, Union County, North Carolina)

Built:
Street:
Stanfield Road
Community:
Monroe
State:
North Carolina
Provenance note:
Drury Morgan (farmer and mill owner), first owner
Historical note:
Student research indicates that Morgan's mill became the focal point of trading in rural Union County, eventually expanding to gain a post office, general store, blacksmith shop, barber, and tailor in the building. During the Civil War, Morgan's tanyards produced saddles for the Confederate troops. After towns and steam powered mills were established in the area around the early twentieth century, Morgan's mill stopped production and the building was not used again.
