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.

In the hills north of town is the mill. Very neat history of the mill and site. There is a small mercantile on site with all kinds of different things. Got some strawberry ruebar jelly which was great on my biscuits. If you're looking for a ride through the country and appreciate history give this place a visit.

This place is really neat. I enjoyed walking through the mill and taking pictures. I would recommend going here and I will be coming back to this mill. It is right out of downtown Abingdon about 5 minutes. They are still making flour and corn meal.

White's Mill has been grinding wheat and corn since the 18th century when Virginia was the breadbasket of America. It has been recently restored and will start grinding using water power from the repaired sluice again (they used an electric grinder during the reconstruction). #2 bags of grits or cornmeal sells $3 or so. \Cheaper than and better than grocery...

We found White's Mill by signs. We will return on every visit because of the wonderful food, great staff and really great prices. My youngest granddaughter was with us on the visit and the staff took excellent care to see to her needs and wants. Everything we had was done perfectly. Anyone will truly enjoy a meal here.
