Project Description

Revolution Mill was opened in 1898 by brothers Moses and Caesar Cone. The first flannel mill in the South, Revolution helped establish Greensboro’s manufacturing tradition and the Triad’s prominence as the center of North Carolina textile manufacturing. In 1984, Revolution Mill ceased production and shuttered its doors, sitting vacant for the next two decades before early redevelopment efforts began.

With a vision of restoring and revitalizing Revolution Mill, Self-Help set out to turn the historic property into a space for creative work and creative living. Revolution Mill has transformed into a destination campus that includes more than 100 businesses, meeting & conference facilities, 150 loft apartments, outdoor performance spaces, public art galleries, ;restaurants and coffee shops, greenway trails and more!
