Aldie Mill was built in 1807-09 and survives today as Virginia's only known grist mill powered by twin waterwheels. For more than 150 years the mill ground for markets along the East Coast and overseas. President James Monroe was an early customer while living at nearby Oak Hill. The mill provided grain for soldiers and their horses during the Civil War. Union Soldiers hid in the wheat bins trying to escape from Confederate partisan John Singleton Mosby.
Aldie Mill annually sponsors a major regional art show, the ALDIE MILL ART SHOW & SALE for the benefit of the Mill.
The show is held each Fri., Sat, & Sun in September from 11 am to 6pm.
April through November, the Mill is open Saturday and Sunday afternoons for tours and grinding demonstrations (weather permitting).
