One of the more satisfying stops on the parkway. Just watching the mill wheel go round is very relaxing. Set in a very scenic spot with tranquil surroundings. As well as watching the mill working a short walk around the rest of the site gives you an insight into how people lived and survived in the early days, with working... More

Stopped at Mabry Mill and was pleasantly surprised. It is a beautiful place to walk around, take pictures, and learn about the mill. We were greeted by Noel at the mill who showed us a buckwheat plant just outside the door (I would have never known) as well as described how it would be ground into buckwheat flour. Very interesting... More

A relaxing walk through history, with demonstrations of crafts and a beautiful mill where you can buy Mabry Mill buckwheat flour as well as grits. The scenery is breathtaking and perfect for tripod family shots. Despite the amount of visitors, it is well kept and... More

very carefully and thoughtful historic display of the "ancient" settlers. Very interesting. A must see for kids to show them how people lived and worked for there bare existence. Boardwalk from one exhibit to the next. Especially the mill is worth a trip.

Perfect for young and old, all year ( though the restaurant is closed in winter) there is something beautiful to see. Great place to stop and stretch when cruising the parkway.

We drove up from Fancy Gap to eat at the nearby restaurant and visit the mill. It was like walking back in time. The boardwall was especially nice. The mill was very well preserved and worth the trip.

I agree with the other reviewers that you will definitely want your camera. There is a little winding path that takes you around to see the old mill, an old cabin from the 1800's that was moved here back in the fifties, many tools that were used - including a blacksmith shop, and even a little vignette on the far...
