All About Us
Once a working, water-driven cotton mill, Riverside Mill is located in historic Weldon, NC, less than 1.5 miles from Exit 173 off Interstate 95 on Route 158 East. We’re just eight miles from the Virginia State Line.
•Space for over 100 antique dealers
•National, regional and local American Craft
•Local and regional treats to eat and gift
•Great views of the Roanoke River
•Hiking along historic Canal Trail
•Just off I-95 exit 173, close to Roanoke Rapids.
Exit 173 is home to the Halifax County Tourist Center and is just a few miles south of a beautiful new North Carolina Welcome Center. The famous “Ralph’s Barbeque” also draws a steady stream of new and repeat customers.
Riverside Mill is a pleasant surprise. This historic cotton mill complex was originally water-powered. The navigation canal that supplied the mill is now the historic Roanoke River Canal Trail, which passes through our front lawn. A short walk westward down the trail brings the hiker to the most photographed feature of the Trail, the Chocoyote Creek Aqueduct. An eastward hike on the Trail takes the walker past downtown Weldon, a National Historic District, to River Falls Park. The overlook of the rapids and cascades that form the fall line of the Roanoke River offer a welcome repose for travelers and shoppers.
