Historical note:
The mill was built by Shepperd Strudwick and associates, textile manufacturers. Built around 1900 as Bellvue Mill (and later known as Flynt Fabrics), this textile mill once was a major employer on the west side of Hillsborough. It manufactured Cheviots and Gingham.
General note:
Many of the houses of mill workers can been seen in the residential area north and west of the facility. This mill and its accompanying village are the most intact of the many mill villages that could once be found in Hillsborough.
