Fieldcrest Plant in the 1920s
This photograph, taken in the late 1920s, shows the
Fieldcrest plant at the intersection of Henry and Harris streets in Leaksville.
The two-story structure at the lower left is the Betty Field Inn. On the
adjoining property was a church, with its spire showing just below the water
tank legs. The old road to Reidsville is shown at the top of the picture,
with the covered bridge just a short distance out of camera range at the left.
