Community Threads: Remembering the Cone Mill Villages

Cathy Grant

Students created an interactive community-history website about life in the textile mill villages: http://conemillvillages.weebly.com/index.html.  Drawing on oral interviews that they recorded, students used GoogleMaps, Flickr, and chat forums to elicit contributions from mill villagers and prompt reflections about the history and legacies of the textile economy and culture. See the Student View.
