Easley Mill Could Become Apartments


A textile mill more than a century old could get new life in Easley as plans move forward to create apartments and preserve the historic property.

A roughly 230,000-square-foot textile mill, known as the old Woodside mill, will be converted into about 130 apartment units, said John Gumpert, a developer with Camden Partners out of Atlanta who is working on the project.

The former cotton mill sits along South Fifth Street near downtown Easley.

“I think it’s just going to be a fantastic contribution to the area,” said Tom Whitted, co-developer with Gumpert on the project. “Generally when these projects happen they affect the entire neighborhood, they bring the whole neighborhood up.”
