Colvin Run Mill Historic Site at Great Falls

Tour the restored mill that was built in 1811 and learn about its history. Or for a more tactile experience, watch the mill grind flour and cornmeal on the first and third Sundays of each month from the spring through the fall. Take home a souvenir of the produced grain at the 19th century-styled general store. There are also snacks, drinks, penny candy, toys and books. –CM / fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/colvinrunmill
