Old MillFeatures

The David and Rachel Caldwell Historical Center and the Old Mill are located at David Caldwell Historic Park next to the Tanger Family Bicentennial Gardens.

The land once belonged to the Caldwells, one of Greensboro’s most influential founding couples, and it was here that they raised a family, ran a farm, and launched a school for young men. Rev. Caldwell served the congregations of Buffalo and Alamance Presbyterian churches and was a political leader during the Revolutionary War.

The historical center provides a look at the Caldwells and showcases the archaeological investigation into their 18th century life. The Old Mill is a replica of what a farmer of that era, like David Caldwell, would have used to mill grain. It is open during normal park hours.
