"From the 1880s through the 1950s, Dalton, Georgia, was a typical southern cotton mill town – similar to hundreds of other little textile cities of the Southern upcountry. In the 1960s, Dixie’s textile industry began to falter and fail, leaving many towns to wither. Dalton’s cotton mills closed their gates forever during the 1960s. By then, however, Dalton had a new industry in town – a homegrown miracle: broadloom carpets. How did Dalton become the “Carpet Capital of the World”? Dr. Douglas Flamming, professor of history at Georgia Tech, will tell the tale, a fascinating story of southern entrepreneurship and regional transformation." Quoted Email.
