The Peoria Cordage Company buildings are located in an area of one and two story industrial and commercial buildings in the city of Peoria, Illinois, United States. Most of the buildings in the area were constructed between 1890 and 1920. The site consisted of ten buildings when the property was nominated and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, three of the buildings carried more historical significance than the others. These included the Rope Mill, the New Mill and the Old Mill. The company was founded in 1888 by Edward C. Heidrich and Martin Kingman in response to the growing demand for binding twine.[2]

The site includes work by architects Hewitt & Emerson.[1]
