DISCOVER THE HISTORY OF THE MILL AT MSU
In 1902, curious crowds from all around made their way to the tiny city of Boardtown to get their first glimpse of electric lights. Lit up at night while workers on the inside produced world-standard quality fabric, those on the outside looked on in awe at the brand new cotton mill, hardly aware the big, bright building would usher their little town into the new century. Production made the town an economic goldmine while statewide industry proved Mississippi was capable of great feats.
