Known also as the Fries Mill Complex, the former Salem Cotton Manufacturing Company and Arista Cotton Mill is the oldest physical reminder of the textile industry in Winston-Salem. Completed in 1836, the Salem Cotton Manufacturing Company was organized and built by members of the Moravian congregation in Salem. In 1880, the F. & H. Fries Cotton Arista Mills constructed the second major building in the complex. The Fries Mill Complex played a significant role in the industrial revolution, and is an important reminder of the achievements of the Fries family to the development and growth of Winston-Salem.Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
