In the summer of 2016, we’re starting a history project about Rocky Mount Mills, in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. We’re conducting oral histories in Rocky Mount (you can sign up to talk to us here.) And we’re looking through newspapers, letters, employee records, photographs and many other sources in places like the Southern Historical Collection and North Carolina Collection at UNC. Eventually, we’ll have lots of information to share here. In the meantime, members of our team will be making frequent posts here. We’ll write about our research process and share interesting discoveries with you. And we’ll start to tell you a bit more about the people who worked at Rocky Mount Mills during almost two centuries of operation. Please follow along, and get in touch if you’ve got comments or questions.
