A former cotton mill in Oakland, Calif., now home to a self-storage company, will join the National Register of Historic Places Friday.
The four-story California Cotton Mill building was once part of a large complex for cotton manufacturing. The brick warehouse was built in 1917. The mill closed in 1954.
To be considered for the National Register, which is administered by the National Park Service, a site must have architectural or historic significance.
