Eagle Cotton Mill Hotel

Eagle Cotton Mill Hotel

Madison, IN

The Eagle Cotton Mill operated from 1884 to 1937 along the Ohio River in Madison, Indiana. Located in the heart of Madison’s National Historic Landmark district, the building had suffered from decades of abandonment and several failed development proposals before Riverton, LLC, selected RATIO to assess the complex’s potential for adaptive reuse as a boutique hotel.

RATIO assessed the complex’s integrity and reuse potential while working with the developer, the City, and other parties to develop a plan for a viable rehabilitation project.

The mill building will contain 85 guest rooms, guest services, and conference center, while the former engine house and picker house will serve as restaurant, bar, and event space. Site improvements will create a high-quality guest experience while celebrating the site’s authentic industrial character.
