Description

The mill ran one 12-hour shift from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., with an hour for dinner, until the late 1920s. After operating with two 10-hour shifts for the next decade, the mill moved to three eight-hour shifts in the 1930s while hiring more workers from rural areas of Davie and Rowan Counties. Second shift men often gathered on the old iron rails below the cafe on the square. (Courtesy of Textile Heritage Center at Cooleemee.)
