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

This is a treasure and deserves a visit. Learn how corn and other grain was processed in the past. Take home some fresh ground flour or other product.

Loved the place till someone decided to put siding on the place and ruined the whole thing, such a shame! It is totally ruined now in my honest opinion! Thank God I got photographs before these people did this to the place! I am heart sick that someone would ruin a place like this! What were they thinking?

Enjoyed this historic venue. Still a work in progress but worth the trip to enjoy. The gift shop is a one of a kind place also.

Self guided tour through all four floors of the real thing. Anyone interested in history would appreciate this fascinating building with the inner workings exposed and labeled for simple education in the milling process. Great views for photography as well.

Went out to the mill on the day we left as it was supposed to be open but was not. 8 mile round trip with only reward to view exterior. Looked cute but little disappointing.

It was a very pretty drive to the mill. We could not find it at first because it has been painted white and has been restored. It takes 20 minutes or less to walk threw. The property is so pretty and great For pictures. This is free of charge so you can't bet that. Don't forget to stop by the... More

This is a very old mill with not much to see once you get there. The most interesting thing I saw was the very well worn wooden floor.

A fun adventure while visiting Abingdon. We took some great photos of the mill decorated for fall harvest, and enjoyed seeing the work of local artisans in the store. The owner of the mill gave us a personal tour, and we loved the grits we bought.
