Welcome to White's Mill!
White's Mill has long served the neighboring community. Since the late 18th century, the mill provided stone ground cornmeal, stone ground grits and stone ground flour for the farm and kitchen, as well as a gathering place for sharing news and views. The Mercantile, formerly the Cumbow Store, provided those store-bought essentials and extras that any home needs. The White's Mill Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, was organized in 1999 with the mission to purchase, preserve and protect White's Mill. The purchase of the mill, miller's house and country store was completed in March 2001. Funds were received from the Virginia Dept. of Historic Resources, Washington County, the Town of Abingdon, local businesses and other sources in the private sector.
