The Textile Heritage Museum presents a history of textile manufacturing in the South- from the cottage industry to the present day.  In the former mill stores, looms, hosiery machines, and raw materials highlight textile production.  Pictures, histories, and maps document the mills in Alamance County and beyond.  Located at Glencoe Mill Village, visitors will see how people lived when cotton mills were booming throughout the South.  The mill village lifestyle comes alive with quilts, period clothing, artifacts and photos.  A typical 1880s mill home with detached kitchen is adjecent to the museum.  The "company store" exhibit features Glencoe Cotton Mill's originial scales and cabinetry.  In the Glencoe Mill office area of the museum, changing exhibits are featured during the year.

This space includes a large meeting room, smaller area with fireplace (The 1880s Tea Room complete with brick arches), and a large kitchen area. Equipped with state of the art audio-visual.
