Enterprise Manufacturing Company, 1450 Greene Street, Augusta Canal, Augusta, Richmond County, GA
Significance: The Granite Mill, built shortly after the completion of the original canal, is the oldest industrial building in Augusta. The later Enterprise Manufacturing Company was the first large-scale mill to use water power from the enlarged Augusta Canal. Its success signaled the emergence of Augusta as a manufacturing center. The mill still operates, showing the adaptability of 19th-century mills to modern machinery, and still (1977) uses canal water to power its hydroelectric plant.
