Historic Loft-Style Apartments

Embrace the rich history of Gastonia, North Carolina when you live at Loray Mill Lofts. Built in the beginning of the 20th century, the Loray Mill was one of the largest textile facilities in the entire area. The textile industry was the heart of Gaston County’s economy during this time period, and the neighborhood boasted more cotton mills than any other county in the country.
At its peak, the surrounding “mill village” housed more than 400 families. Children could begin legally working in the Loray Mill at age 13, though it was common for even younger children to work in mills across the South. In the 1930s, the mill was sold to the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, and it continued to produce tire fabric until 1993. While updated with an array of modern amenities and finishes, our apartments at Loray Mill Lofts still preserve much of the mill’s unique industrial charm.
