Cotton Mill Ruins Burns Again



Coincidentally or not, the most recent fire @ 159 Riverside Drive, the ruins of the Asheville Cotton Mill, took place 18 years to the day (April 2, 2013) after this property was consumed by fire, that  started @ The Chesterfield Mill on April 2, 1995.  There is great concern in the West End/Clingman Avenue Neighborhood that continued loss of historic structures due to property owner neglect will deplete the neighborhood of its cultural heritage.   The Historic Preservation Society sold this property to Riverlink in the 1990's for the sum of $1.
