reviving its echoes

White's Mill, near Abingdon, VA, was built in the 1790s and continued its water-powered milling operations until 1989. With community support, it's currently undergoing renovations. Here is the web site with more information, directions and hours listed.

History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.
--Winston Churchill


  1. I drive through this area once a year on my way to Tennessee from NJ. Always looking for a moment to get off 81 to see a little of Virginia.
