Sibley Mill 1880

Opened in 1882 and closed in 2006 when Mill's owner fell on hard economic times, the Sibley was a major textile power for more than a century. It is also an architectural wonder and a historic treasure, based on its affiliation with the Confederate Powderworks that occupied the same site during the Civil War -- and whose ruins supplied a half-million salvaged bricks used to build the Sibley.

The building is on the National Register of Historic Places by virtue of its inclusion in the Augusta Canal National Historic Landmark District.
