The blue ridge pkwy has breathtaking views. Mabry Mill is a great place to visit take pictures and learn about how life was many years ago. The staff were so eager to share their knowledge.

It was a rainy Saturday. The parks service had demonstrations going on and there was also someone inside the Mill giving details on it's history. There is a gift shop and public restrooms next to the parking lot.

When I go home to Mt. Airy, I love riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway and eating at the restaurant at Mabry Mill. I always get breakfast and it is so delicious. I don't think you'll be disappointed with touring the mill or eating at the restaurant. I love going when the Rhododendron trees is in bloom.

This is a small restaurant with the best buckwheat pancakes I've ever eaten. Very friendly staff and a souvenir shop with Blue Ridge stuff for sale.

We enjoyed stretching our legs and learning of the flour/saw mill and blacksmith shop. Life was not easy back then and it was amazing to learn of Mr. Mabry's creativity. It is worth the stop!

My mom and I went on a weekday in July. It was interesting to look around at the structures. There were no demonstrations except for a woman spinning. But it was a pretty area. There is a small restaurant next door with the gift shop.

Classic old mill with a still working waterwheel. Easy path access to views of the mill and surrounding buildings. This trip they had a blacksmith shop operational with demos, weaving shop with a ranger making corn husk dolls, and also a ranger making a chair 100 percent by hand. Wonderful stop for history and a walking break.
