Sometimes you need a restart on your revolution.
When Ceasar and Moses Cone built Revolution Mill in 1899, the name was apt -– it was revolutionary, in the textile business. Cone Industries ran the mill for the next 83 years until technology (for the most part) and, to some degree, globalization made a labor-intensive mill obsolete. But it was a good run.
At the time, much of the sentiment in the Triad was to simply get rid of what looked like an eyesore. But wait a few decades and perspectives may change.
In this edition of the Buckley Report, see what one group has planned for the old Revolution Mill in Greensboro … and why it’s so important to do exactly what they’re doing.
