You’ll Marvel At The Undeniable Beauty Of The Ruins Of Great Falls Mill In North Carolina
To get a look into the past, sometimes all you need to do is look at the present. The hauntingly beautiful abandoned ruins of the historic Great Falls Mill in Rockingham is a wonderful example. The first rendition of Great Falls Mill was built in 1839 and by all accounts it was the tallest building in town.

In February 2021, the Richmond County Daily Journal published an article announcing the new owner of Great Falls Mill is seriously considering demolishing the ruins and building a storage facility. No dates for beginning the project have been announced. Until demolition begins and ends, you can view the ruins from the highway along W. Broad Avenue in Rockingham.
