D.A. Tompkins bought the land and water rights in 1892 to build the cotton mill which started production on October 1, 1901. This is a book that he wrote in 1899. The book goes into great detail from the development of the cotton mill village, the raw cotton, the building of the community, building the factory, and the shipping of the finished product world wide. It was reprinted by the Univerity of Michigan Library and can be viewed at the address below..

This DVD is now available at Drums Florist in Lincolnton, NC. Many people have helped to put this project together from donating pictures to stories and information on High Shoals. David Foster was a great help in the project.
Jeffery Lynn Reed was also very helpful in donating his music to the project.
Thanks to all who worked on this window into the past.
