The Spring Maid Fabrics mural can be found on the Brixx Wood Fired Pizza building in Kingsley! The mural is an ode to Springs Industries- a Fort Mill cotton textile company that became one of the leading textile manufacturers in South Carolina during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The history of Springs includes ownership being passed down from multiple generations, labor protests, and the multi-million dollar valuation of this company. You can read more about the interesting history of this company here.
