I may have mentioned that I'm being a docent a couple of times a month at the Swanannoa History Museum, and their big display this year is about the beacon Blanket Mil in Swanannoa. Swanannoa in an unincorporated village between Black Mountain and Asheville, NC.
The Beacon display has many interesting details. I'll share a bit with you.
The story boards tell almost everything you might want to know about the factory, and the results of beautiful blankets and bathrobes.
It took about half an hour to read them all, and take photos of them.
There are also 3 videos. I hope you get a chance to visit.
