    Meadow Run Mill & General Store 1797

    Not far from the Tavern, the Michie family owned and operated a mill and general store. At the turn of the century the mill fell from decay. In order to recreate the Michie's Tovern plantation (which stretched for several miles) Historic Michie Tavern relocated The Meadow Run Grist Mill from nearby Laurel Hill, Va. The 18th century mill was painstakingly reconstructed to ensure the preservation of milling operations of that time. The General Store, housed on the first floor, offers visitors a mercantile atmosphere of the 1800s.

    The store has lots of wonderful gifts and be sure to head towards the back to see some artifacts.

    Open daily, year-round 9:30 am – 5:30 pm

    The Michie Taver complex built in ca 1784 consists of a few building. Apart from the largest one with an original inn (tours, clothier and gift shop and restaurant now) there is a large dark brown wooden house put up by the road. It's General Store and Meadow Run Mill. On the way to the tavern there is another building, small cottage offering cold drinks (Coca-Cola instead of local cider now).

    The buildings and interior of the general store are reconstructed in great way and gave me the idea how it all worked over 200 years ago.
