In 1911, Shamrock Knitting Mills was the first structure built by the Hanes Hosiery empire. Originally, the company manufactured cotton socks for children and men. In 1914, Shamrock Knitting Mills was renamed Hanes Hosiery Mills Company, and in 1918, the company switched to the production of women's cotton hosiery. The building's sawtooth roof is noteworthy in the development of industrial architecture. Sawtooth roof construction became popular in the 19th century and was also known as "north lighting." The skylights faced north to achieve the greatest benefit from the sun. This significant structure recalls the early history of one of the largest hosiery manufacturers in the world. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
