Glencoe Mill Village is a beautifully isolated, surprisingly intact little community north of Burlington on N.C. 62 at the Haw River. “It is a typical but remarkably well-preserved example of nineteenth century industrial villages that once flourished in North Carolina’s Piedmont region,” Glencoe’s National Register nomination states.
It’s not as remote as it was when it was established in 1880, but if you’re looking for a neighborhood that’s quiet, out-of-the way and a historic treasure, Glencoe is it. There are two beautifully restored homes for sale in the village (another is under contract). One is priced at $250,000; the other, $159,000.Continue reading “2450 and 2456 Glencoe Street: Two Restored Houses in Alamance County’s Historic Mill Village”
