During the last few months, we have spoken with numerous former Rocky Mount Mills workers, their families, and other community members with stories to tell about the Mills. We are focusing on what we call “Closing Stories”—memories and stories from the last years of the mill’s operation in the 1990s. We’d still like to talk to former workers about their memories of working at Rocky Mount Mills. If you’re interested in participating, you can sign up here. If you have questions or comments, email project manager Elijah Gaddis: elijah@unc.edu.

Once we’ve recorded your stories and memories, we’ll use them to make digital exhibits where you can hear, read, see, and learn more about the history of Rocky Mount Mills. In the meantime, we’ll post updates and other information in weekly posts on our blog.
