This building housed what is believed to be the oldest grist mill in America, dating back to Virginia’s early settlers. The 300 year old Mill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a registered Virginia Historic Landmark. Renovated in 2013, the mill building is now ADA compliant, but still retains the charm that it has held for centuries.
