What is it with Weaving Rooms in Hillsborough? The specialized Weaving Room for the Eno Mill was built in 1917; typical for the time/architecture, it had a low pitched gable roof with a 10 ft tall monitor at the roof peak. Windows were multilight arched windows, likely operable.

In 1987 the building was destroyed by fire. In the 2011 photo below, the concrete pad represents the footprint of the building; the interior of the western wall of the weaving room (with infilled windows) is visible as the exterior wall of the 1971 infill in the background.

As part of the renovation for an event space known as "The Cloth Mill," the owners as of 2016 replaced the brick infill in this wall with outward facing windows.

I hope that someday someone will rebuild this building and demolish the 1971 infill between this and the main mill, re-exposing the original facade of the main mill building.
