Aldie Mill was built between 1807-1809 and survives today as Virginia's only grist mill, powered by twin waterwheels, that is open to the public. For more than 150 years the mill ground for markets along the East Coast and in Europe. The site is rich in Civil War heritage as well as early 19th-century manufacturing history.
