GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Students at a North Carolina university have created a Web site that lets those who lived in Greensboro's textile villages share their experiences.
The News & Record of Greensboro reported that students at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro created the site called "Community Threads: Remembering the Cone Mill Villages."
Former mill village residents are able to share their experiences and photos at a series of events that began last week and continue into April. One will be held Sunday afternoon at a reading at First Friends Meeting.
The textile project is in its second year and is the work of a group of 10 museum studies students.
Greensboro had five mill villages until 1957, when Cone Mills began selling the houses. Only one operates today.
