Inscription. At Glencoe, there were three levels of management: Owner, Manager, and Superintendent. The location and style of their houses indicated their occupants' status in the hierarchy. The Mill Owner's House, built for Robert Holt, is a large 2-story residence beyond the edge of the village, facing NC 62 N. The Mill Manager's house was a 1 1/2 story dwelling overlooking the entrance to the village from NC 62. It burned in the 1940s; on its site today is the Holt-Heritage House of similar size (built by Glencoe mill owner Robert Holt, then moved to Glencoe in 2002 to save it from demolition). The Mill Superintendent's house stands within the village, for he was part of the labor force. Except for its wraparound porch, the Superintendent's house is similar to the other mill workers' houses.
