Wade’s Mill is a working flour mill built in the 1700’s. The mill was built by Captain Joseph Kennedy, an early settler of the Shenandoah Valley. The Kennedy family owned the mill for about 100 years before it was bought by James Wade, whose family operated the mill for the next 4 generations.

Wade’s Mill is now officially registered as a historic place:
Wade’s Mill is one of the few remaining flour mills that actually still produces flour exclusively on mill stones. While we were there, the current owner was milling!
The bottom of the mill has a store where you can buy all the goods milled at Wade’s Mill. We bought some polenta, grits, and pesto bread…YUM!
This mill provides flour, grits, polenta, etc for the local restaurants.
