Weaving Room, 1950 (via Steve Rankin)

The Weave Room or Weaving Room was built ~~1923 as part of the expansion of the Bellevue Mill beyond its original Main Mill building.

On May 20, 2016, in the afternoon, a "suspicious" fire broke out in the Weaving Room, quickly becoming a multiple alarm / mutual aid fire, with fire departments from Efland, Mebane, Chapel Hill, New Hope (and perhaps others) responding.

Only part of the exterior wall remains after the destructive fire.

The sale of the mill complex to a developer occurred on 08.23.2016; the developer maintains that they will reconstruct the Weave Room in its original configuration.
