They are slowly restoring this mill. It is neat to see and interesting to check out. Not a lot there, but still worth the short drive if you're in Abingdon. The shop has jams, candles, jewelry and items from different vendors; a wide range for a small store. The clerk is extremely friendly.

Looking forward to using the yellow corn meal I purchased. Nice self-guided tour of facility. Wonderful grizzled character milling the corn. Lovely woman minding the store.

This grist mill is a very historical and interesting place to review the past in grinding meal and is being restored. The outside siding takes away from the charm of the old siding

The old milll is being restored.. slowly... but it's worth the 5 mile drive just to see the rustic setting. I'm prejudiced because my mother was from the White family who owned the mill years ago.

On the National Registry of historical places, White's Mill was interesting to see. Included were 3 small floors of antique machinery, which still operate periodically. Renovations are still in progress. The surrounding countryside is quite picturesque. Admission is free; but open only Wed. through Sun. 10am - 5pm. Don't miss the really cute general store (across the road) with the... More

My wife and I took a little side trip to see the mill. Although we were a little disappointed to find that it is not fully restored, we were pleased to learn of its history and explore the facility. The little shop across the street was charming, and the hostess was very helpful.

It was interesting but no longer functions. The little store next door was worth a few minutes. The shopkeeper wasn't very friendly.

The mill itself was interesting as a building and some of the machinery. There was no one there when we visited. It was pretty chilly inside on a cool day. We enjoyed it. The little store across the street is a bit creepy however so I'd skip that part and just stick to the mill if you are heading that... More
