Woodsons Mill in Lowesville

The Lowesville community, situated at the junction of the Little Piney and Big Piney Rivers at the Nelson-Amherst County line, was once a thriving community with a railroad, stores and other commercial development in the area.  The Woodson Lumber Company located a chestnut log milling operation which brought the railroad to the area. 

Woodson’s Mill, operated from the turn of the century to the 1950s, is again in operation.  It has a small-scale milling business and products are available for purchase.
