About Us

White's Mill Foundation was formed in 1999 in order to purchase, preserve and protect the Mill.

The White's Mill Foundation

The foundation formed in 1999 to purchase, preserve and protect White's Mill, one of the last remaining grist mills in Washington County.


The Purchase and Preservation

The purchase of the grist mill, miller’s house, and the mercantile 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.  White’s Mill has recently undergone a complete renovation to the outside structure including a new roof, siding, windows and major structural work.
