AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- From the towering turrets, to the peeling paint and concrete floors, Sibley Mill is a picture of history.
Built from bricks salvaged from the former Powder Works, now a project called Augusta Cyberworks is propelling the mill's use into the future.
"It's mind boggling," said Walter Sprouse, the Executive Director of Augusta's Development Authority, "what is getting ready to happen right here.

"They're massive computers that run 24 hours a day," said Sprouse, "And what cools them down? water! These are really big factors whenever companies are looking to find a good location."
Cape Augusta Digital Properties signed a 75 year lease, for what will become a cyber technology park.
