If you take the trip on Route 11, you should definitely NOT miss The Museum at the Edinburg Mill, in Edinburg, VA. 3 complete floors filled with exhibits and artifacts, complete with a small theater showing a film of The Burning (during the Civil War). There are also 2 gift shops. The 1848 Mill survived the Civil War. There is an elevator and ample parking at 214 S. Main Street. It is open 7 days a week.
