Unity Spinning Mills

Built in 1909, and located on land lot 146 in the 6th district. No new corporation was formed, but the plant was built by Unity Cotton Mills and formed a part of its properties. The products of this plant were twines, cords and yarns. No weaving was done in this plant in the original layout. The superintendents were S. Y. Austin and Boyd N. Ragsdale. This was a unit of the Callaway Mills.

Valley Waste Mills

The construction of this plant followed very closely upon the building of Hillside Cotton Mills, of which it formed a part. A separate charter for this plant was granted on November 4, 1927, to Cason J. Callaway, Henry G. Smith, and Grady S. Kennington. As the name implies, it was a plant for the utilization of cotton waste. In the merger of 1932, the plant has lost its corporate identity.

Valway Rug Mills

Incorporated on November 4, 1927, by Cason J. Callaway, Ira B. Grimes, and Henry G. Smith. This plant is a distinctive idea in the diversification of production in the South. The manufacture of rugs in the plant has always been a source of interest to the passing visitor, because the use of jacquard looms and other machines is so different from those of the ordinary cotton mills. The beauty and variety of the rugs had commended them to a widespread patronage in America.
