Description:
This image shows a drawing of the Columbus Mill on the banks of the Chattahoochee River near Columbus, Georgia. The mill is depicted as a very long, multistory building sitting perpendicular to the river. Outbuildings and other buildings stand around the mill, and a water tower rises behind the mill next to the river. This mill was built by the Bibb Manufacturing Company in 1900 . Eventually the cotton mill grew to be the largest in the country, supporting a mill town known as "Bibb City."
