Welcome to Rustiques!

Whether your current project is new construction or a remodeled space, items from Rustiques can give you that one-of-a-kind architectural feel. Rustiques is going through the meticulous process of carefully dismantling each treasured piece of the West Point Stevens Mill. Construction of the original section of the mill was supported by 25′ pine beams have a 3″ x 6″ sub-flooring and face nailed maple hardwood floors. The materials are milled from support beams measuring 10″x 18 1/2″x 25′ and sub-flooring beams. We are reclaiming the beams, flooring and other miscellaneous antique items which are all offered for sale to the public.

West Point Stevens Mill History

The mill was laid out in 1891 and became a textile mill in 1908. The mill ceased production in 2006. In the early 1900s, Anderson investors, including Judge Cox, formed the Calhoun Mills Company with a view toward building a textile mill in Calhoun Falls. A financial panic in 1907 forced the investors to reorganize, and that brought the noted Williamston banker and textile magnate James P. Gossett. Construction on the mill began in 1908, and it opened in 1909, a three-story brick factory with 16,000 spindles surrounded by 50 mill houses.*
