The Crossing at Hollar Mill is one of North Carolina’s most unique historical event spaces and Hickory’s premiere events venue. Located in a beautifully restored hosiery mill, the space boasts elegant high-ceilings, large, mill-era steel sash windows and shining hardwood floors. This stunning renovation has left no detail undone, reminiscent of the industrial past of Hickory’s historic mills, but modernized for today. We have provided an array of amenities and flexibility in the space that makes it truly perfect for any number of events. With more than 10,000 square feet of space accommodating 350 seated guests and 600 guests at full capacity, The Crossing is ideal for any gathering including weddings, graduations, anniversary or holiday celebrations, concerts, conferences, meetings, proms, craft fairs and more.

This old mill has been repurposed into a variety of retail/restaurant uses including a really nice event space for a wedding.

The venue here is incredible, such a great place to host any type of party. All of the renovations of the mill are quite beautiful, but the staff here is nearly unbearable to work with. VERY unreasonable prices and MANY last minute or hidden fees....More
