Yesterday: Grimes Mill painting
Artist Marshall Stokes of Rockwell submitted this photographic copy of the oil painting he has done of Grimes Mill, which was destroyed in a five-alarm fire Jan. 16 in Salisbury. His original oil painting measures 22 by 28 inches and is on display at the Salisbury Emporium off North Lee Street. Historic Salisbury Foundation owned the 1896 roller mill, which was located along North Church Street at the railroad tracks. The mill’s bricks are being salvaged and sold individually and by the pallet. Proceeds will go toward offsetting costs of the site’s cleanup. Historic Salisbury Foundation also is asking people for their memories of the mill to include in a forthcoming book. To contact the foundation, call 704-636-0103.
