Welcome to the historic Edinburg Mill, one of the few Mills to survive the burning during the Civil War.
The 1848 Mill has been tastefully and creatively adapted to house an area devoted to transportation in the County through the years: on the great valley pike (US-11), the Shenandoah river and the nearby railroad.
The Edinburg/Madison District museum has been relocated to the Mill and many additional exhibits have been added to display artifacts that demonstrate the rich local history of this agricultural area.
There are exhibits on the Civil War, as well as on the nation's first Civilian Conservation Camp, which was established just outside Edinburg. The main museum displays are located on the second floor, accessible by elevator, and require an admission donation of $3.
The Museum is open year-round, but closed Christmas Day. Hours are: Mon. - Sat., 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Sunday, Noon - 5 p.m. [In bad weather, call to check: 540-984-8400]
The Museum includes a 50-seat theater where the film, The Burning is shown throughout the day. The film, based on the book by John Heatwole, was prepared expressly for The Edinburg Mill, and copies are available for sale.
