The Pilot-Crompton Mill was an urban-based industrial complex consisting of both mill buildings and worker housing. It was established two blocks north of Raleigh's 1881 city limits, but its form and style mirrored that of rural mill sites. James and William H. Williamson established the mill for the manufacture of unfinished sheet goods. The mill building has been rehabilitated for office and school use.
