We finally found it, but it was all for nothing. Neither the mill, nor the store was open. Really thought it looked neat, and would love to have stopped, but the hours are misleading.

My wife and I recently visited White's Mill on our trip to Abingdon. We toured the mill but ran short on time so didn't actually visit the store next door. The Mill is open for self guided tours and is a wonderful window into our past. This would be a great place to take children to show them history first... More

While tooling around Abingdon, we decided to take a suggestion and visit the old mill. Quite interesting walking in the 1790's building and imagining how things were back then. Cool collection of old grain and flour sacks and lots of historical info. Next door was the surprise of the White's Mill Mercantile; a fun,funky jumbled mix of antiques, collectibles, jams,... More

This is the best place to buy grits. I live in Utah now but have relatives that live nearby and I am constantly ask them to send me grits. My wife thinks I am crazy but these are the only grits I eat now. The building and little store are cool and fun to visit and the workers are great.

We were told that while it was being restored, this mill still produced some products. We saw not evidence of that activity. The flume has been restored as well as parts of the building, but the wheel is still not operational. It is worth the relatively short drive just for the history.

A picture perfect mill that you can wander around in and then walk to the shop and buy some stone ground flour or grits produced on site.
