About the Museum

The Textile Heritage Museum is located in the former Company Store and Office Building in the Glencoe Mill Village. The 1880 building was purchased for the museum in  2004 and is an ongoing restoration project.

The museum highlights the textile history and mill villages of Alamance County, the Piedmont, and beyond.

It features history and machinery of the textile industry from the cottage industry to the present, village life, a large company store exhibit, and many other exhibits of interest.

There are exhibits from currently operating local mills with product displays.
