We are always looking for pictures and artifacts that pertain to the people of Lando and employees of the mill. When we receive these items, they are documented and maintained by the history center and a large number of items are on display inside the history center.
* Susan Murphy passed away on March 21, 2014. She was a pivotal member of the Edgemoor and Lando Communities and a driving force behind everything at the Lando History Center. She will be greatly missed.
The mill village of Lando has experienced over 245 years of history. Known as Walker's Mill during the American Revolution, the grist mill and surrounding area hosted British troops during the summer of 1780. Later known as White's Mill in the early 1800's, Lando was one of the first fulling mills in the South. Benjamin Dawson Heath created Manetta Mills in 1896 and for almost 100 years made blankets that were sold all over the world.
The complete history of Lando and Manetta Mills can be experienced inside the Lando Manetta Mills History Center.
