2016 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

HABERSHAM MILLS
Demorest, Habersham County

The Habersham Mill property is a rare surviving example of a mill village which reflects its industrial past as an iron works and textile mill. In addition to industrial buildings, the village included employee housing, school buildings, a barbershop, a post office, a general store, and a baseball stadium for the mill company's own team. In 2012, the entire mill property was purchased and its new owners began a multi-phase preservation project. Phase I of the project includes the artful rehabilitation of the barbershop, post office, and company store into vacation rental units, event space, an art studio and gallery space.
