Project description: The property’s history as Hawkins Mill, Aqua Terra and George & Joann’s Antique Mall is giving way to Cherokee Firearms. Gun store owner Nick Newman bought and razed the old mill in 2015 and is relocating Cherokee Firearms and adding an indoor shooting range on the 1-acre site. He said the store will sell some 20 brands of ammunition and 180 models of guns from 40 brands, including Remington and Winchester. The building is designed to resemble the old mill, Newman said, including reclaimed tin covering a roof tower. “You’ll see some of the features of the old mill building brought back to life,” said project manager Dave Mann of Nabholz Construction.
