Mabry Mill Grist Mill
a restored grist mill, sawmill, woodworking shop, and blacksmith shop
Mabry Mill is a historic water driven grist mill that is an area icon on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Mabry Mill was built and owned by Edwin Boston Mabry around 1910. Ed Mabry couldn't have had any idea that his water powered mill would become so popular when he built it. Also on the grounds are a blacksmith shop, a one room cabin, a bark mill, a sorghum mill and an old time whiskey still.
The grist mill has been restored and is fully operational. The water flows down the millrace and the giant wheel makes creaking sounds as it turns causing the grinding stone inside the mill to be set in motion.
