Burwell Morgan Mill near Washington, DC
It is easily accessible from the major highways and is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register. Grindings take place in the season on Saturdays, and a range of grain products are available for sale including several varieties of corn, as wells as Buckwheat, Hard Wheat, Soft Wheat, Rye, 9-grain and pancake flour.
The mill was established in 1782, as a joint effort of Gen. Daniel Morgan who fought in the French and Indian War and was Commander of one of Washington's Rifle brigades in the American Revolution. He joined with Col. Nathaniel Burwell, of nearby Carter Hall, to harness the power of the water at Spout Run, a tributary of the Shenandoah River, to operate the large grinding stone, and the Burwell-Morgan Mill became central to community life for the next several hundred years, as it is still.
With help from the Garden Club of Virginia, the Mill's park and surrounding grounds are a delightful setting for a picnic, and in the Spring and Fall of the year, the Mill hosts one of the best art shows of the mid-Atlantic region, featuring hundreds of artists displaying more than 1,000 works of art.
The Burwell-Morgan Mill is open on Fridays and Sundays from May to November, with hours from noon to 5 pm, and features grindings every Saturday, with hours from 10am-5pm. The Mill is also available for weddings. photoshoots, and for other private events, with arrangements through the Mill manager or the Clarke County Historical Society.
