'Inspired by the legacy of the county’s 44 textile mills from 1829 to 2000, 44 Mills brings inspired, modern, Southern cuisine to Concord in style.' -44 Mills •
Paying homage to our name tonight, we introduce #MillMonday & Locke Mill as the 1st of 44 featured Cabarrus County mills. On the National Register of Historic places, the mill AKA ‘Odell-Locke-Randolph Cotton Mill’ was constructed in 1839 as the Concord Steam Cotton Factory (..which then was AKA the Barringer Mill.) By 1842, the mill was producing cotton yarn, shirting, & other goods. By 1850, a railroad ran west of town & the mill had 70 employees. War & bankruptcy caused ownership to change several times so the AKAs go on & on: this CabCo Landmark has been known as the McDonald Cotton Mill, Odell Manufacturing Company, Locke Mill, & Randolph Mill. Today the mill is home to many small businesses, executive offices, & apartments. We love the rich history of these Mills. Do YOU have any stories about Locke Mill? Or pictures to share? We'd love to hear/see!

Today’s #SundayStaffSpotlight goes to 44 Mills owner/partner, Mike Davis. Any restaurant has a bazillion moving parts & Mike is the glue that holds all those pieces together for us! Whether he is putting in the work to organize fabulous events like our upcoming Beer Dinner w/ @townbrewingcompany or crunching numbers at our corporate office, he’s always full of smart ideas & innovative solutions. Cool as a cucumber, he brings witty humor into our organization and everyone (from the Back Of House to the Front) is grateful to call him Boss!
When he’s not being Superman at his restaurants, he can be found cheering on his son Hampton at baseball games, getting in some travel time with his girlfriend Lauren, or shining his entrepreneurial spirit at one of his many other successful business ventures. Thanks for being such a great leader, Mike! We appreciate you! 🌟
