Description Mabry Mill, Blue Ridge Parkway, Floyd County, Virginia, USAWhen Edwin Boston Mabry (1867-1936) built his water powered mill in Virginias Blue Ridge Mountains, in 1903 where he and his wife Lizzy ground corn, sawed lumber, and did blacksmithing for three decades, he had no way of knowing it would become one of the most photographed places in the United States. The mill, on the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 176.1, draws several hundred thousand visitors each year. The gristmill and sawmill have been restored by park naturalists so visitors might see live exhibits, a real mill, and a working miller to demonstrate the milling process. The grounds of the mill include other interpretive media all designed to tell about mountain industry.
