Harmon Cox Mill Site
The Harmon Cox Mill, ca. 1767, is considered one of Randolph County’s Revolutionary War landmarks, and was considered a “public store” when food and forage ran low for the Continental Army. It remained a staging area for both Continental and Tories with control of the facility changing hands during the many local battles. At one point, the mill was fortified by Tory forces and used as a staging area by Tory warlord David Fanning. With Fannings defeat in the summer of 1782, Cox’s Mill was never again the center of death and destruction, but remained an important industrial/commercial center in Randolph County.
