This 2-3 story structure was built in 1904; as was typical of mill construction in this era, 1-2 original buildings held multiple functions, and as the mill incrementally grew, buildings became more and more specialized. As is specified in the 1905 Sanborn below, this building was to be used as a Dye House, and for Beaming and supply. The adjacent building was used for weaving; later buildings would move weaving and dye into their own single purpose structures.

This is the most visible remaining historic section of the Eno Mill. I hope that at some point the windows will be unbricked and restored.
