Inscription. This monument is dedicated to the many generations of employees of Union Mill. This mill provided a livelihood for many families and contributed greatly to the growth of Union County for over 100 years. During the height of the textile revolution, 1400 workers were employed.

It is our hope that the hard work and quality textiles produced by these dedicated employees will never be forgotten.
