The transformative development consists of three historic buildings on the site of the former Ellison Flour Mill that were restored and renovated, preserving and repurposing as much of the original material as possible. The property, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, sits at the corner of Ellison and Wall Streets in the heart of downtown Fountain Inn.

The Mill at Fountain Inn is the first original concept to open from Innovative Hospitality & Development (IHD). The local ownership group, co-founded by partners Bryan Beal, Sako Zadoian, and Ryan Robertson, primarily targets historical, textile, and abandoned buildings, bringing them new life through renovation, restoration, and revitalization. IHD currently owns and operates Vaughn’s Food Hall in Simpsonville, and plans to open two new concepts in Greer and Woodruff in 2025/2026.
