Cannon Mill

Kannapolis, NC. Built:1887, demolished in 2006.

Ted and I were visiting a friend of his in Kannapolis, NC, several years ago and knowing there was a textile mill in the area, I brought the camera. We followed sign after sign directing us to Cannon Mill, and after some searching, we found it. Or rather what was left of it.

These two pictures were all that we could take of what remained of the old mill.  The North Carolina Research Campus has since been built on the mill site.
