Gibson Mill had buzzed with activity for decades, becoming a place of employment for generations of proud families in the Cabarrus County area. For 100 years, the historic plant produced fine American-made bedding until the shifting global economy changed the way business was conducted. Manufacturing went overseas to China and India, and the once proud plant went silent.

"If these buildings could talk," they thought, "imagine the stories they could tell." They decided to pursue a purchase of the complex and bring activity back to its buildings, and Cabarrus County.
