About Music in the Mill

Sometimes it’s the view – your eyes darting back and forth from the band to the adjacent railroad track and the music seems changed by the surrounding beauty. Sometimes it’s the sense of discovery – you suspect the night’s opening act is headed for stardom. And sometimes, it’s simply the fact that on any given night, you know they’ve booked another great show.

Music In The Mill was developed as a way to promote The Crossing at Hollar Mill as Hickory’s home for live music. By providing well-crafted music and concerts, Music In The Mill create jobs and encourages population growth.

Built in 1930 and restored in 2013, The Crossing has it all – history, setting, sound, character, atmosphere, vibrancy, uniqueness, and is inch for inch the most comfortable venue in the region. The Crossing is one of North Carolina’s most unique historical event spaces and Hickory’s home for live music.

The goal of creating a regional entertainment destination is a reality. Come be part of the fun, the history. Join us for the 2018 Music In The Mill concert series beginning June 8.

Also located within Hollar Mill, Highland Avenue Restaurant, and Di’lishi Frozen Yogurt Bar offer pre and post-concert fare. Tunes, food, and brews in a historical gem make Music In The Mill the place to be!
