Best Answer

Mills were mainly located in the North due to the fact that the mills needed a flowing water source to be powered. There were many streams and rivers, which could power mills, in the North. Another reason why mills were mainly in the North was because the South was all about agriculture and didn't want to waste money on mills when they could buy slaves for labor in the fields.
