At milepost 176.2 of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd County , Virginia, you can visit the picturesque water mill MABRY MILL. We visited the Mill on a foggy, misty October day. It is a popular tourist attraction mainly for the picturesque views of the Mill itself. Even in the mist, it was eerily beautiful. 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. You will also see a log cabin, blacksmith Shop and animal shelter.
Also, there is Mabry Mill Restaurant and Gift Shop. The restaurant is famous for its buckwheat cakes. country ham, Virginia barbeque and blackberry preserves.
Farming has been a way of life in Southwest Virginia for generations. Ed and Lizzy Mabry's nearly Century old Gristmill is without a doubt the most picturesque spot on the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. Even in the foggy mist, there was an eerie beauty about it.
Ed built this Mill and the Mabry's ground corn for their neighbours for three decades. Ed was talented in many other areas as well - adding a wheelwright shop, sawmill and blacksmith Shop.
Rangers and volunteers offer cultural history demonstrations like spinning wool, making baskets, even Blacksmith demonstrations are presented in the Blacksmith Shop.
