    Wow! I’m so pleased to see the mill in that condition. The store with the apartment above, is so amazing. All in a beautiful setting! This would be great to restore and have a business here, something that treats these wonderful old buildings with the respect they deserve.

      I wonder what it would be like to mill unique grains for local bread makers. Then there is the sourcing of grains… A dream to use old equipment, perhaps to make ones own bread, I love a good loaf made with time to add character to the dough. Thank you Kelly, this is wonderful

    Patrick County is still untouched in some parts of southwestern Virginia, this being one of them. My daughter has property near there, and it is absolutely beautiful countryside on the edge of the mountains. However, it is not too far from a National Park and a lake that provide all the outdoor adventures we could want.

    The historical buildings here are a treasure that have been made partially livable, and look at that old store — a time capsule complete with some of its wares. What fun it would be to make those acres and buildings a personal prize as well as an historical one.

      PS Here is a comprehensive history of the owners of the property and a detailed (!) review of the mill and its workings for The Goblintown Grist Mill, as well as its restoration in the 1990s.

      Unbelievable. . . the new owner will get all this with the property!

    Who WOULDN’T want business cards that read

    This would be so much fun to live in and care for.

    I think this would be such a neat property to own, and you could have school tours of the mill and store.
