A National Register Historical Landmark and one of the oldest, most original operational grist mills in the country located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. In the early 1780s, Gen. Daniel Morgan, a true Revolutionary War hero, joined efforts with Col.Nathaniel Burwell of Carter Hall to build this water powered mill in an area that would become the quaint village of Millwood. During many years as business flourished, the mill was the center of community life where people would gather to socialize and gossip as they waited for the miller to grind the grains they had brought with them.

Take a tour and step back in time ...come marvel at the unusual and immense interior water wheel..come see, feel, and listen to the power of the turning wooden gears, shafts, bins, and old millstones, while the dedicated miller explains the process of grinding wheat and corn just as it was done over 200 years ago. Freshly ground flour, corn meal , and grits are available for sale at the mill.
