In 1815, when the first cotton mill was established in Lincoln County, NC, it stood as one of the physical and symbolic cornerstones of an industry that would come to define the economic and cultural being of North Carolina. Following the offshore exodus of the 1990s, today North Carolina is rebuilding through hybrid development, with one of the fastest growing markets in the state being the export of intermediate/unfinished goods that overseas firms turn into finished products. These materials are in a raw, in-between state-their promise yet to be realized-much like the textile industry of the 21st century, and our current understanding of it.
On view in the Hughes Wing.
