"Textile Memories: The Rise and Fall of Textiles in Rutherford County" with Terry Hines and Phillip White is being held on Thursday, April 6, at 5:30 p.m. in the Library Auditorium at Isothermal Community College. The history of textile development in Rutherford County began with the rise of a small group of men born before the Civil War who became young adults during Reconstruction. Early textile mills began from their efforts and vision. Raleigh Rutherford Haynes and Simpson Bobo Tanner were such men. They joined in building Henrietta Mill. This mill's success led to textile manufacturing expansion in Rutherford County and elsewhere. Phillip White will cover the beginning of textiles in Rutherford County, focusing on the mill villages and the Haynes and Tanner families. Terry Hines will cover the last 20 years of operations for Cone Mills in Rutherford County. From the mill's best years in business to the decline and closing of operations. Hines will focus on the people employed, the customers served, and c o m m u n i t y involvement. The History Matters Series was developed by the Isothermal Library staff and a committee of local historians and educators. The series kicked off in September and will include many future events.
