My wife and I stopped here while on our trip through The Blue Ridge Parkway. One of the most photographed stops on the parkway. They have a fun walking trail past many interesting sites and a restaurant on site that we did not visit

To me, this is a must if you are travelling on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was a beautiful place. We got some amazing photos and enjoyed touring the grounds and buildings.

Loved walking around the mill area seeing all the different things that were there. This is a great stop on the park way.

I found Mabry Mill to be such a fun and pleasant surprise. I really enjoyed walking around and looking at all the old structures and exhibits and taking pictures of them to share with my family. It's nice to relax, and take a step back in time wondering how it was back then. Got some great pictures ! They have... More

We had seen Mabry Mill from the Blue Ridge Parkway, but this was our first time to stop. Walking through the exhibits from the "old days" was a delight. A real plus was that it was a Sunday afternoon and the Park Service had a bluegrass band playing on the lawn in the middle of the exhibit buildings. Such fun.

This is maintained by the park service and is a free place to visit. Also has a restaurant and Ice cream place too. Interesting as the waterwheel still works and they have demonstrations of how life was like than.

It is best to go on Saturdays to this attraction but really any time is nice. Saturdays they often have living history people there like a chair maker, loom operator, blacksmith, etc. They even have mountain music sometimes you can dance to. This is a family tradition we've done for over 21 years. It is always a nice stop and... More

A beautiful place, not to be missed, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The history of the place is brought to life by signage, re-enactors, and park rangers. A nice gift shop and restaurant is also on premises.

As we worked our way up the Blue Ridge Parkway, I definitely wanted to stop at the mill. I am so glad that we did. We learned some history of the area and was surprised to find that the mill was still working. It is definitely a great learning experience for the children that were there with their families. Have... More
