Carr Mill Mall

If Carrboro has a Parthenon it is the historic Alberta Mill, now Carr Mill Mall. Anchored on each end with restaurants, Panzanella on the west side and Elmo's Diner on the east, the converted cotton mill has a number of interesting stores. The Mill was built in 1898 and closed in the thirties. Surprisingly the Carrboro Board of Alderman wanted to demolish the mill and build a new mall (like the ones that are being town down all over the country). The community was horrified and fought to save the mill which reopened in 1977 as Carr Mill Mall. Probably one of the most architecturally interesting malls in America with wood floors, ceilings and walls and giant beams. An annex to the original building is home to Weaver Street Market. These photos were taken in 2004 and some of the businesses are gone. I have new photos and when I get the chance I will make a new page for the mall.
