Three additional issues of The Fieldcrest Mill Whistle are now available to view on DigitalNC thanks to our partner, Rockingham Community College.

The Fieldcrest Mill Whistle provided Spray, North Carolina residents with a community newspaper and also doubled as a source of information for Fieldcrest Mills employees. Fieldcrest Mills was a textile mill that produced items such as blankets, towels, and bed sheets.
