Lincoln Mill is an office complex already on its way to becoming the next great hangout spot in Huntsville, welcoming visitors with a blast from the city’s industrial past.
Huntsville is great at repurposing old, well-loved spaces, capturing the cool that they once were and bringing them back to life with a new twist. Lincoln Mill, being redeveloped by Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate Group, is coming alive before our eyes as an office campus with the addition of food and retail that all can enjoy!
I’ve always thought this mill was awesome, and now it’s getting even better. Read on to learn how to explore Lincoln Mill in Huntsville and when new businesses are opening here.

Lincoln Mill has earned its place in Huntsville’s history. Long before its current facelift, the mill’s started out as a working textile factory in the early 1900s. It wouldn’t become Lincoln Mill until 1918, when developers say textile tycoon William Lincoln Barrell bought it and changed its fate.
The mill survived bankruptcies, the Great Depression, a huge fire, and more before attracting the interest of business leaders and today’s developers, eager to give it a fresh start.
Try What's New!
If you haven’t been by the renovated Lincoln Mill on Meridian Street in a while, come ready for an office environment now surrounded by action and adventure—and bring your appetite! New restaurants are already opening up shop in the space, alongside existing office facilities already on campus. You’ll find ways to get your adrenaline pumping and even a good meal—my personal favorite way to enjoy Huntsville!
If you’re looking for an adrenaline fix, check out this recently-opened fitness studio at the mill! Each 55-minute class combines cycling, barre, and strength training into a well-rounded routine. No matter your fitness level, you’ll find something for you. The studio also offers condensed or cycle-only classes.
Blow your taste buds away at Fusion Barbecue, which recently launched at Lincoln Mill! Traditional BBQ flavors combined with an Asian flair produce delicious results such as wagyu brisket (do it!), Asian bourbon ribs, and smokey edamame. On a recent visit, I learned their savory fries are cooked with wagyu beef fat for that perfect crispy exterior. They even make ordering at the table a breeze with QR code menus, although your server is still a great resource and can provide you with a printed menu if you like. (Tip: try to go during happy hour for some great drink specials!) Whether you make a special trip out to try it or are taking a break from work on-campus, you won’t be disappointed.
