Historic loom on display at State Fair

Posted October 23, 2013

A 1757 loom is on display at the Village of Yesteryear, and it still works beautifully. It was first used to make a wedding gown and remained in the same family for centuries. More than 200 years later, it found its way to the North Carolina State Fair and is perhaps the oldest working loom in America.
