Brandon Mill is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places at the local level under Criterion A for Industry for its association with the history of the textile industry in the first half of the twentieth century in Greenville, South Carolina. Brandon Mill conveys the industry that was central to the economic and physical development of Greenville and the upcountry of South Carolina during this period. The mill shares the common design heritage of many mills in Greenville with the principal engineers being the firm of Lockwood, Greene & Co. as well as having significant additions designed by renowned regional engineer Joseph E. Sirrine. The mill was built during the c. 1900 mill boom in Greenville and is a strong example of this multistory brick masonry construction mill type.
