Built in 1930 by the Hollar Hosiery Mills Company, The Crossing is bordered by Highland Avenue, 4th St SE, Lenoir-Rhyne Boulevard and the Southern Railway and neighbors Lenoir-Rhyne University. The building is one of two well-preserved knitting mills remaining in Hickory, NC, and the space is a tribute to the town’s industrial history.
