A picture of Mabry Mills which is located in Virginia. It took me about an hour and a half to reach this mill from when I started to ascend the mountain. About two-thirds of the way up I ran into heavy rain. I debated turning around but decided since I had climbed the crazy roads and braved the rain to get within 7 miles of my destination after an 1800 mile trip, I wasn't going back without a picture.
Mabry Mill is a watermill located on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd County, Virginia. It is a tourist attraction mainly for the picturesque views of the mill itself. A short trail around the mill connects historical exhibits about life in rural Virginia. The trail allows visitors to view the gristmill, sawmill, and blacksmith shop.
Mabry Mill was built by Edwin Boston Mabry (E.B. Mabry). E.B. Mabry returned to Floyd County in 1903 and began the construction of the mill. It was first a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, then became a sawmill. By 1905 it was in operation as a gristmill. By 1910 the front part of the mill was completed and included a lathe for turning out wheel hubs, a tongue and groove lathe, a planer and a jig-saw. Between 1905 and 1914 E.B. Mabry bought adjacent tracts of land, mostly for the purpose of acquiring more water power.
During peak seasons, demonstrations of crafts are given by National Park Service volunteers at Mabry Mill.
