This is a great place. There are so many historical things to see inside. The exhibits are well thought out and arranged so nicely. You can also see the movie "The Burning" which is 45 minutes and gives you a nice history of the area. The exhibits are free but there is a small ($3) fee for the movie.

The very first time we visited our friend, noted Civil War artist Keith Rocco, at his home/studio on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River near the tiny hamlet of Edinburg on the historic Valley Pike or Route 11, he encouraged us to visit the Edinburg Mill and accompanying Shenandoah Valley Cultural Heritage Museum. It wasn't on our itinerary at... More

This old mill building is one of the few spared when the Union soldiers burned every home, mill, forge, barn and field in this part of the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War. This historical event is well documented in the film "The Burning" shown several times a day upstairs in the museum. In the building you can still see... More

Visitors office and museum. Watched 45 min film on 'The Burning' of the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War. Many period artifacts on display and the main floor is free. Well worth the visit.

So much to see and ooh-ahh over. Almost a museum, you will find vintage valley items and not so touristy as you'd expect.

$3 each to tour the whole facility. Lot of old tools and memorabilia. Many well defined displays of numerous types of articles. Having worked in similar water powered mills as a young engineer, it was extremely interesting.

Unplanned visit but since we were visiting the nearby Meems Bottom Bridge, we decided to stop in to see what it was all about. It is a real gem! Three floors of nicely displayed local and regional history. Elevator available if you wish not to climb the wonderful creaky stairs. Convenient parking and a nominal entry fee of $3.00 per... More

Highly recommend this awesome collection of local history of Edinburg, VA. The Mill was saved from burning by the Union soldiers by brave young local women while the majority of the Shenandoah Valley was destroyed! The current Mayor championed the development of this collection of artifacts commemorating the role of Edinburg during the Civil War and the success of this... More

The museum has a lot of exhibits of local history. My grandson liked the antique voting machines, typewriter, and train. The film, The Burning, was a disappointment due to the quality of the film, but if you are not familiar with the burning of the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War, it is worth watching.
