c. 1865

A grist mill operated on this site under a series of owners until 1865. A gun factory was also located on the property during the Civil War. The cotton mill, which would be incorporated as Oakdale Cotton Mills by Joseph Ragsdale in 1896, opened for business in 1865. Today it is the oldest textile mill in continuous operation in the United States and produces natural and dyed cotton yarn and twines.
