Scottdale Mills

Closed March 2013

Scottdale Mills, founded by George Washington Scott, opened in 1901 and was a vital part of the manufacturing landscape of DeKalb County until its closure in 1982. The mill provided employment for the surrounding community, as well as a store and a cemetery. The items in this exhibit include tools and signage from the shop floor, historical photographs, original documents and samples of the products made at the mill. (May 2012 – March 2013)
