The Cigar Factory was built in 1881 and served as a textile factory, a Cotton Mill, and then a cigar factory for over 60 years. During the 1930s, the factory was the largest private employer in Charleston with about 1,400 workers generating more than 400,000 cigars daily. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, and several parts of the original warehouse structure will be preserved and restored in the redevelopment of the space.
