Earlier the Slaters had started the first textile mill in America in Rhode Island in 1790, Slater Mill, and owned mills in Massachusetts before moving their operation to South Carolina. In 1934 H.

Stevens' Slater Plant went on to produce the main material for the space suits used on the first moon landing in 1969 and space shuttle components as well. In 2016 JPS Composite Materials owned the mill, which was mainly producing fiber glass and sold it to B&W Fiber Glass.GeographyMarietta is located in northern Greenville County at .
