This space suit exhibit was part of the Greenville Textile Heritage Society Festival held at Textile Heritage Park. This was a prototype suit of the type worn by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin for the first moon landing.

The JP Stevens / Slater Plant produced the textile material for these space suits and later shuttle components.

The Greenville Textile Heritage Society Festival event was to celebrate the start of Phase 2 building of Textile Heritage Park.
