Don Koonce, local historian and documentary filmmaker, will tell the story of the early days of West Greenville and the Brandon Mill Village at the Greenville County Historical Society’s fall meeting Oct. 2 at 3 p.m.

The meeting will be held in the former Brandon Mill cloth building at Greenville Center for Creative Arts (GCCA), 25 Draper St., in the Village of West Greenville.

Cherington Shucker, executive director of GCCA, will discuss the mill’s restoration and renewed purpose as a local arts hub and loft community.

The Village of West Greenville and Brandon Mill serve as examples of adaptive reuse, a method of conserving resources while simultaneously preserving history.

Following the presentations, guests are invited to a reception and will have the opportunity to see what’s happening with the restoration of the mill. Tours will be given of GCCA and the mill next door, now known as the West Village Lofts at Brandon Mill.
