This structure stands as a relatively rare example of late-nineteenth-century industrial architecture in Raleigh, a city that has always been a government, education, and market center rather than an industrial town. The solid brick construction, shallow-pitched roof, and large windows typify mill buildings of this time. The large windows introduced natural light into the work area prior to the use of electric lights. The interior, which has high timbered ceilings, decorated columns and large open spaces, has lent itself to conversion to condominiums.
