Drayton Mills Retail
Spartanburg, South Carolina
Drayton Mills was constructed in 1902 by former Spartanburg mayor Arch Calvert, John H. Montgomery, J.B. Cleveland, J. F. Floyd, W.A. Law, W.E. Burnett, and A.L. White. Designed by Lockwood, Greene & Co., the mill was named in honor of Col. Drayton, a Revolutionary War hero. The spinning mill was the first building constructed with the weaving mill, warehouses and company store following as later additions. The mill closed in the 1990s, and on Oct. 24, 2012, Drayton Mills was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Two historic buildings on the Drayton Mills campus house commercial space. The Warehouses, constructed between 1902 and the 1950s, and positioned at the center of the site, serve as the heart of the campus. Totaling 60,000 square feet and distributed over a wide variety of spaces, the Warehouses offer restaurant, retail, and office tenants truly unique options.
