Former mill built in 1863. On four acres in Louisa, Virginia. $250,000

November 30, 2021

Old mills are so interesting to me! Often times they became meeting places for the local community. This mill was originally built in 1774! It was replaced in 1863 due to the Civil War. Curious what happened that made them replace it. Maybe it’s functionality changed? It is located on 4.2 acres in Louisa, Virginia. The mill still has all of the machinery and components. Price seems a bit steep considering the condition it is in, but I am going to assume that is due to the proximity to Charlottesville. $250,000

From the Zillow listing:


Own a piece of history. Original mill, constructed in 1774, was replaced in 1863 due to the War Between the States at the time and has survived ever since. Has all the equipment and components when last operated as a running mill. Current owner is a wealth of history and technical knowledge of how the mill was operated and how the equipment was used. Still possesses three of the original grindstones and all related equipment. Too much to mention here! This is a unique opportunity for the investor or mill aficionado who recognizes its value.
