Built-in 1901, expanded in 1948, and reconstructed according to National Park Service Historic Standards in 2021. Blue Bell at Lenoir Mills offers residents spacious loft living in downtown Lenoir. The conversion of the former Lenoir Cotton Mill, once the largest mill in Lenoir, Blue Bell at Lenoir Mills is a significant representation of late nineteenth century textile mill architecture. The masonry façade, timber-intensive interior, large wooden columns, and 12-foot-tall windows with segmental arched tops which wrap the building, are among the original details preserved. Blue Bell at Lenoir Mills has been reimagined into 46 one- and two-bedroom loft-style apartments and is located within walking distance of historic downtown Lenoir.
