This old mill could use a little TLC to make it come back to life. Interesting place to visit if you're into that sort of thing. There is a shop across the street that is jam packed with a variety of old and new goods.

White's Mill is an interesting place to spend a little time when in the Abingdon area. Though it is out of the way, it is worth the drive out there. The antique store/gift shop is great.

Although the mill only operates on a part-time basis, it is open for browsing. Students from the nearby college are researching and developing the history of the mill and the people who ran it and their customers. That makes it interesting. Across the street there...More

Mill built in the early 1700s still in operation. While the outside of the mill has been restored, the inside definitely has some beams that have seen some history. The machines inside the building are amazing and seem to be in pretty good condition. According...More

Abingdon visitor's guide makes this site look close to town, but it's really 4-5 miles out. The little arrow on the map means a long drive. It's a historic mill with a self guided tour. The water wheel was not running...much less the mill. Looked...More
