Originally founded by Ed Mabry, Mabry Mill remains one of the most famous and highly photographed rural life attractions along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Mabry Mill was originally built in 1910, and the historic water-powered grist mill, sawmill and nearby blacksmith shop provide you with a view of pioneer life along the Parkway. Old time skills (basket weaving, seat caneing, spinning, and weaving) demonstrated. Applebutter making on Sundays in October - Oldtime bluegrass music on Sundays 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. Self-guided tours include a sorghum mill, soap making kettle, and an "old time" whiskey still.

Mabry Mill is known for its stone ground grits, cornmeal and buckwheat flour, which is why travelers and locals alike come back year after year for the Mabry Mill Restaurant's famous buckwheat cakes, country ham, Virginia barbecue and blackberry preserves.
