    Hey there, saw your post on Craigslist for space rental and very interested in meeting to visit and discuss space usage possibilities. I have several needs for various types of studio space: leatherworking, photography, band etc...
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

This cotton warehouse, with brick end walls and pilasters, later infilled with concrete block between pilasters, is the last remaining building of the destroyed Durham Hosiery Mills No. 6 complex that sat across Henderson Street. It was originally built ~1916, per the Durham County tax records.

Note "Edge of Brick Building" on lot #11.

1937 Sanborn map, showing cotton warehousing with tobacco storage on the 4th floor.

~1922-1924 - the warehouse can be seen among the trees in the right background. (Digital Durham)

Looking southwest, 1930s (Herald-Sun)

Looking south, 1950 (State Archives)

Originally the building had an open loggia, seen above, on the north side, which has since been infilled with concrete block. The southern facade is a bit of a mystery, as it was clearly replaced with concrete block at some later date.
