The February Where Is This photo from Lumbee River EMC member Glenn Poplin features the waterfall located behind the Great Falls Mills ruins off Highway 74 in Rockingham. Built in 1869 on the site of the former Richmond Mill, this textile mill processed cotton until the 1930s, then was used for storage before burning down in 1972. The band Hootie & the Blowfish filmed a music video at the site in the 1990s. The mill is located on private property. The winning entry chosen at random from all the correct submissions came from Tom Nash of Concord, a Union Power Cooperative member.
