Our museum is located in the over-100-year-old Cotton Mill office building in the Mill Village at 420 Elliott Street, here in Edenton, North Carolina (* see links to maps below).
We are proud of having one of the most well preserved intact mill villages in North Carolina. The entire property — consisting of the mill, office, houses (approximately 70), and out buildings — are listed on the National Register of Historic places.
We are open every Saturday from 11–2 (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s weekends).
Our museum was first conceived in 2005 when a group of “Cotton Mill Kids” got together for a homecoming. Since that time, we have worked toward a common goal of saving and preserving the history of the Mill and the people who lived and worked here.
