I thought the cotton warehouses sprang up after the mill was built? The story I always heard was the name proximity referred to abundant water resources nearby. Kind of ironic in today's water conscience environment.

Hugh: We took most of the information for today's post from the link above and can't attest to its accuracy.

It is our hope that through Greensboro Daily Photo some of the local lore gets discussed, AND sorted out! Thanks for your post regarding Cone Mills. If we're lucky, others will add their comments, references, and links.


I never associated the Cones with Greensboro because I always think of the Moses Cone Memorial park and the house he built in the North Carolina mountains. I always love to go there for a walk when I'm in Blowing Rock, NC. Of course once I stop and think about it I had heard they had their headquarters in Greensboro and I read about that.
