The History of Southern Bleachery & Print Works
From 1924 to 1965, the Southern Bleachery Mill purchased unfinished textiles from surrounding mills and then bleached, dyed, and created finished products.
In 2012 Southern Bleachery & Print Works was added to the National Register of Historic Places. When the mill closed in 1965, it sat vacant for the most part until 2015. Then, coffee and artist’s studios breathed life into the quiet that had existed for so long down this dead-end street in Taylors, SC. Since 2015, the use of the mill has expanded to include places to dine, play, workout, party, and more!

Kidding Around’s Maria is a huge fan of coffee and was terribly excited to discover that a new coffee shop had moved in.
“Junto Coffee is located in an amazing space. Its huge windows let in an abundance of light reflecting the lightly painted walls and ceiling, creating a very warm feeling. Some of the windows look to be original and really add to the charm of the space. And let’s talk about the plants. I love green, growing things. Each window is decorated with a hanging plant and there are large, mature potted plants throughout the comfortable seating. There are a multitude of living room-type sets of furniture as well as benches and more traditional chairs and tables spread throughout the large space. There is also a grassy outdoor space with tables that would be a perfect spot for moms with a couple of little kids to meet up.”

It’s no secret that a few of us here at Kidding Around are self-described pizza snobs. We have particular criteria, and we definitely each have our favorites. The Farehouse is now on my list of go-to pizza places, and I’m mad I didn’t make it there sooner. The pizza, coupled with the gargantuan-sized chicken wigs, topped potato wedges, and the extensive cocktail list, makes for a meal that will make stops at this hidden gem a regular occurrence for your family.
