Eagle & Phenix Mills – Columbus, Georgia – 05/05/2021

Prior to the Civil War, the Eagle Mill was the second largest textile mill in the state of Georgia.

At the end of the war, even after the Peace Treaty was signed, continuing skirmishes in the Columbus, Georgia area resulted in the mill buildings being destroyed.

Rebuilt in the late 1860’s, with other buildings following in the 1870’s and 1880’s, the Eagle & Phenix Mills eventually became THE largest mill complex in the state of Georgia.

The Phenix name was added in 1869, as a reference to the company rising from the ashes.

Today, the Eagle & Phenix Mills are being restored as close to their original condition as possible, while being repurposed into lovely residential properties.

The mills remain a gorgeous fixture of the Columbus, Georgia skyline, and can be seen from many vantage points in the city, including the 14th Street Historic Bridge, the Chattahoochee Riverwalk, Front Avenue in Downtown Columbus, and from across the river in Phenix City, Alabama.
