On May 17th, RPS members and guests went to Lindale Mill near Rome, Georgia to shoot at the ruins of this historic textile mill.
Go here to see a Virtual Gallery of some of the artist’s favorite shots from this field trip.
Lindale mill was an industrial textile factory built in 1903 by Massachusetts mills and was later sold to Pepperell Manufacturing, giving the community and school the name “Pepperell”. The mill employed 1903 employees and produced 1/7 of all textiles in Georgia. The mill closed in 2001.
Lindale mill is open to the public for photography, filming, and events by appointment.
