Abstract: The intent of this study was to analyze the interiors of four historic mills and determine how historic character and integrity was maintained during the rehabilitation process. Along with maintaining historic character, this study aimed to identify how historic interiors are introduced to modern design elements. This historic built environment speaks to identity and sense of place through the past, and within rehabilitation, creates and identity and sense of place for a more modern society while keeping significance of the past intact.
