    »George Washington's Grist Mill

    Between Woodlawn Plantation and Mount Vernon lies yet another of the enterprising first president's projects. Built before the Revolution and in operation for 30 years, this grist mill was used to grind corn and wheat into flour. It was neglected for years, leaving little but its foundation in tact at the start of the 20th century. However, it was renovated in 1930 with parts from another mill of the same period. Today visitors may view the mill along with exhibits explaining its operation.
