Beautiful location that has been photographed and painted many times. Photographers practically wait for "their turn"!
Mabry Mill is a watermill located at milepost 176.2 of Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd County, Virginia. It is a tourist attraction mainly for the picturesque views of the mill itself. 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.
Mabry Mill was built by Edwin Boston Mabry (E.B. Mabry). E.B. Mabry returned to Floyd County in 1903 and began the construction of the mill. It was first a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, then became a sawmill. By 1905 it was in operation as a gristmill. By 1910 the front part of the mill was completed and included a lathe for turning out wheel hubs, a tongue and groove lathe, a planer and a jig-saw. Between 1905 and 1914 E.B. Mabry bought adjacent tracts of land, mostly for the purpose of acquiring more water

    Much like my preference for female cardinals and pea hens over their ostentatious male counterparts, I also prefer the more subtle autumn colors (in photographs) than the blaring reds and oranges. What could be more beautiful than a shot of this iconic mill on the edge of Autumn. This is stunning for me to view, Jo Ann.
