Demolished some time in 2013-2014.

-- Original Description --
Great location in a fairly secluded place. Doubtful of the land value if it rises making the owner tare it down. 5 floor (incl. basement) structure contains lots and lots of empty barrels, chairs, and other rubbish. The grass is mowed, so the owners keep a close eye on the property. There is certainly water damage in upper floors. Broken glass in few places, otherwise dust is the only problem. Most light fixtures in place and have bulbs. There is a small and active substation on the property, but none of the buildings seem to have power connected. One of the recent notes is a Dish Network satellite antenna on the wall on the office building.
Looks like a group of paranormal investigators were here in the mid 2000s to check the place out and deemed it 'haunted' check out web links (site no longer available, pulled from web archive).

    The first large mill in the district was constructed about 50 years after the Revolutionary War. The man at the center of the development was Dr. James Bivings, about 1832. The community took the name Bivingsville. Records indicate that the mill was sold for $19,500 in bankruptcy proceedings in 1856. A group that included Dexter Edgar Converse bought the mill. Converse was chosen as manager of the mill. After the Civil War, Converse became the principal owner of the property. In 1880, apparently at the urging of Converse’s wife, Helen, the name of the village was changed from Bivingsville to Glendale.
    In the 1880s, D.E. Converse & Company bought property on the Pacolet River and expanded beyond the mill at Glendale. In 1881, the first mill of Clifton Manufacturing Company was opened. In 1889, Clifton Mill No. 2 began operation about three-fourths of a mile below No. 1.
