Colvin Run Mill in Fairfax County, Northern Virginia, dates from the early 19th century. It’s a water-powered grist mill that still operates today. On the grounds of the mill is a general store that originally served the community and where you can now buy freshly ground flour and cornmeal, old-fashioned penny candy, and other goodies. If you visit between noon and 3 PM, you may be lucky enough to see the miller at work.
