Last week we told you about a Chinese textile company touring the Wiregrass over Memorial Day weekend.
Monday, the SoZo Group released more details of the group's visit. They toured Houston, Henry and Geneva Counties. The team toured Cotton Farms and got to talk with the farmers. They also toured three cotton gins.
One of the main goals was to find out the kind and availability of cotton in the Wiregrass. The group was shown available buildings that once housed thriving textile factories.
Another group is expected to arrive in the Wiregrass next week.
