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.

We fell upon the Mill while out for a drive. While the mill itself might need some restoration..the little gift shop next store is sweet. We purchased a few handmade items and had pleasant conversation with the folks working there.
