The Kerr Mill Complex, was a commercial and manufacturing facility, constructed in the late 1800s.  A massive fire destroyed the sprawling complex and caused over $50 Million in damages.  The fire started in the boiler room of the Thread Mill and destroyed eight historical structures.  The blaze forced the evacuation of residents in a one-mile radius and could be seen from over 30 miles away.  T.J.
