Previous Story 1/7/14 :
Recently I met with someone very close with the old mill property on Bradley Street which is directly behind the AMP. Through our conversation I learned about a possible mixed use development in the works. Most importantly I learned about the history of the mill. Yesterday I read through parts of a book by James C Bonne, called Georgia’s Last Frontier, The Development of Carroll County. I was enlightened of all the rich history this area provides. For example the book tells about a fire that swept through in Bowdon during 1887 which destroyed numerous businesses. I read about the wagon trade that Roopville enjoyed which extended to Heard County. In the book it also goes into details about the Train Depot and all the businesses that would move product back and forth from it. Most importantly the book spoke about mules that would help carry goods to specific areas, such as the Square. I was told that the old mill on Bradley Street has a mule stable towards the back, which would be preserved if the property was developed. The city would first have to approve of this and maybe make it into some sort of landmark. I am interested to see what happens with that. According to sources close with the property it is currently under contract for a mixed use development. This means that the property could host a variety of different things such as; retail, food, maybe a small gym, or lofts. Nothing is set in stone just yet with the use of the property. A year or so ago an Atlanta developer was wanting to make the old Mill into an upscale hotel, but those plans quickly diminished when Marriott agreed to build a Courtyard Hotel behind the Cultural Arts Center. The Courtyard by Marriott plans to start construction very soon behind the Cultural Arts Center.
