Michie Tavern's General Store ca. 1797

The General Store

Browse The General Store located in the Meadow Run Grist Mill ca. 1797

More than anything else, the mill stands as a symbol of America’s growth. Gristmills, powered by wind or water, ground grain into flour for life-sustaining bread as well as feed for animals.

Michie Tavern dismantled this 1797 mill from nearby Laurel Hill, Virginia, numbered each piece and then transported it by truck more than 50 miles so that it could be reconstructed here.  The painstaking restoration required two and a half years.

Today. the Meadow Run Grist Mill houses Michie Tavern’s General Store and welcomes visitors daily.
Open Monday – Friday 10:00 – 4:00  |  10:00 – 5:00 Weekends
