Lincoln Mill poised for growth

The mill has been there for 98 years, and it's about to take on a new life.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Lincoln Mill development has been around for 98 years and now they're working on a new revamp of the property. 

The property started off as a cotton mill in 1924. It has thrived through a major fire, and weathered through the great depression. 

In the next few years, new restaurants, shopping and fitness centers will be coming to Lincoln Mill and the current business owners are thrilled. 

Iron Tribe owner Blair Morris says, "This development is really just going to amplify it and bring more growth this way as well. There's housing units behind the apartments that are being built behind us right now so you see the growth of the city really moving this way."

He says they can't wait to see what Crunkleton Associates does with the property over the next few years. "I know there's proposed to do things around here as well. I don't think they have been quite released yet, but there are a lot of proposals out there and a lot of talk. but I really expect growth to come this way and I'm really excited about that. It's going to be really nice once they get the fully development, once they get the retail side." 

There are over 31 million small businesses in the country and North Huntsville has welcomed several over the last few months. Huntsville is the fastest growing city in Alabama, and Lincoln Mill proves. it.
