Buffalo Mill was one of many textile mills built in South Carolina during the early to mid-1900s. Construction on the mill began in 1900, and the office (pictured here) was built in 1902. This building is part of the Buffalo Mill Historic District in the city of Buffalo, located in Union County.
Other buildings in the historic mill district include a power house, an ice factory, a company store, and a bank and drug store. All of the buildings are listed in the National Historic Register.
The engineering firm belonging to W.B. Smith Whaley designed the buildings and many other textile plants across the state. While the mill is slowly being demolished, the office has been restored. The historic mill district in Buffalo is probably the best remaining example of a South Carolina mill town.
