Re Use The Past is housed in an old hosiery mill.


Grantville Hosiery Mill built in 1895 as the first " big business " in town. It employed 55 people and had a separate Mill Village for the employees. In 1903 the operation was so successful that a new slightly different facility, The Yarn Mill, was constructed a half mile north. The owners had provided a way to convert cotton into useful end products and market the products instead of shipping out raw cotton for manufacture elsewhere.


A tragic fire severely damaged the mill in the 1970's and the remaining 3,200 s.f. was re-used as a Mop Factory and later became a Cabinet Shop.


For More About 




Re Use The Past is an architectural salvage and antique store 
catering to both the old and new home owner as well as 
restoration professionals, craftsmen, history buffs and collectors.


We offer heart pine flooring from 1840 and newer, heart pine doors that make great headboards for beds.  

All parts on these birdhouses (left) are made from old wood salvaged from the burn pit.  The roofs for these houses are made of otherwise unusable ceiling or roof tin.    

Mirrors, coat hangers and wall sconces created out of ceiling tin are also available.. 

Authentic Victorian Stained glass windows that were salvaged 40 years ago from old houses being torn down in Atlanta, were restored to their original beauty and hang proudly again.
Check us out for brick, pavers, hinges, doorknobs......if it is old, we probably have it


Now we are doing the same thing by using the building as a "clearing house source" for architectural items. Our clientele include renovators, builders and decorators in this region.  We have met with great success by providing doors, windows, bricks, flooring, trim work as well as nice antique furniture, regional pottery, and stained glass windows.
