13.  Paragraph Briefly Summarizing Known History Of The Property.

The Queen Anne cottage-style homes are located on the north end of the mill village on Dover Street and were originally occupied by the millís overseers of the spinning and weaving rooms.  In 1946, The Dover Yarn Mill sold the mill to Cone Mills.  The new company built additions to the mill, which included a new weave room.  In addition, they renovated the mill village by adding bathrooms and asbestos shingles to the homes.  Eventually, Cone Mills ceased their rental business and initially offered to sell the domiciles to the employees.  The new owners continued to make improvements to the homes.
