Food halls are thriving in popularity across the country, and Greenville is not one to be excluded from a happening trend. With other food halls in discussions for Greenville, Contour Companies has taken a unique approach with theirs that will match the look and feel of the American Spinning Mill, preserving the historic intent of the property.
This 30,000 sq. ft. modern food hall (about half the size of a football field) will sit adjacent to the former American Spinning Mill – which will be converted into 280 Class-A apartments during Phase One of development.
The American Spinning Company was organized in 1895 by Oscar Sampson, James Orr, and Jacob Cagle. The company began in a two-story wooden building but quickly grew into the brick building pictured above, built in 1902, and was operational until June 27, 1990. At one point, the mill’s surrounding village was home to 2,000+ people. You can see more photos of the mill + the folks who called the area home here.
