History of The Mill
A TIMELESS SETTING FOR THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE
In 1902, curious crowds from all around made their way to the tiny city of Starkville, Mississippi to get their first glimpse of electric lights. While workers inside produced high-quality fabric through the night, onlookers gazed in awe at the brand new cotton mill, unaware that this stunning display of technology would usher their small town into a new century of progress. Production and economic success from the mill put Starkville on the map while statewide industry proved Mississippi was capable of great feats.
Fast-forward to 2015, nearly 50 years after the last thread of “Starkville Chambray” was produced, and The Mill at MSU reopened with the same excitement and promise as more than 100 years before. Peruse our full timeline for our historic tale.
