The American Spinning Company Mill No. 2 is significant as a well preserved example of early twentieth-century industrial architecture and for its contribution to the industrial development of Greenville, South Carolina. As one of only thirteen remaining mills (many of which are quickly deteriorating) the American Spinning Mill stands as a reminder of the vibrant history of textile manufacturing in the South Carolina upstate, the workers who labored in the mills, and the neighborhoods created by them. The original mill complex was the first to be designed and built by the renowned engineers Lockwood & Greene, as well as Greenville residents Joseph E. Sirrine and Capt. Jacob Cagle, all of whom were also responsible for the design and construction of American Spinning Mill No. 2.
