THE PURCHASE

330
The purchase of the mill, miller’s house, and the country store were completed in March 2001. Funds were received from the Virginia Dept. of Historic Resources, Washington County, the Town of Abingdon, local businesses and other sources in the private sector.

White’s Mill has long served the neighboring community. Since the late 18th century, the mill provided meal and flour for the farm and kitchen, as well as a gathering place for sharing news and views.

THE PRESERVATION

White’s Mill has recently undergone a complete renovation to the outside structure including a new roof, siding, windows and major structural work to the hurst frame and south wall. ¬†Once the building was made structurally sound, we cleaned out the raceway and rebuilt the wooden flume.
