Developer closes on Peerless Mill property in Rossville

They want to turn it into a mixed-use town center

ROSSVILLE, Georgia (WDEF) – A developer has completed the purchase of the old Peerless Mill in Rossvile, Georgia.

Tyler Cauble of Hamilton Development and real estate investors Jess Reed and Brandon Thornberry want to turn the old mill into a retail, restaurant and office space.

They’ve been working on the deal since last fall, with the support of Rossville officials.

“This deal has been in the works for a while so our team is delighted to announce the closing of Peerless Woolen Mill with investors Jess Reed and Brandon Thornberry,” said Tyler Cauble, founder of Hamilton Development. “Hamilton Development is ready to continue our reach in the Chattanooga area with the hope of helping small businesses on a much larger scale.”

The goal is to turn it into a mixed-use town center for the city.

The Peerless Mill used to be one of the prime manufacturers in our area, employing hundreds.

They made most of the wool blankets our troops used in World War II.

But the old plant has haunted Rossville’s attempt to modernize in the last 40 years.

City leaders have been trying to turn the property into a profitable business again.
