On March 20, 2004, a catastrophic fire destroyed the Glendale Mill.

(Picture of the mill before the fire. Picture taken around 1910).
The following photographs were taken by Mr. Terry Gilmer during the fire.  We appreciate him making these photographs available to this website. Click on the small photograph to see a larger view.
