Provenance note:
The mill was begun as a small operation by Thomas F. Lloyd, a local farmer. Lloyd sold the mill in 1909 to Julian S. Carr, a Durham tobacco and textile businessman.
Architectural note:
The original section is a two-story structure of Italianate design, typical of mill architecture. In 1912 and 1918, Carr expanded the mill to nearly double its original size.
Historical note:
In 1976, after sitting vacant for years, the mill was renovated and now serves as a shopping center.
