The mill and surrounding Village was added to the National Register of Historic Places in October, 2005. In later years, the mill and surrounding 50+ acres was purchased by the City of Cartersville, Georgia and then sold to a private developer.
The mill children hoped the developer would be able to salvage the mill and recreate lofts or living spaces that would maintain partial integrity and history of the mill. Economic times prevented this from happening, and the newer part of the mill was demolished and fell victim of the times.
The photos below were taken in the Fall of 2009 and early 2010 during the demolition process.
