Slone’s Grist Mill

Slone’s Grist Mill was built by the Slone family between 1880 and 1890 in the Turner’s Creek section of Franklin County, VA, on the Pigg River. Esom Slone owned this mill until his death in 1909, when the ownership passed to his two sons. The mill passed out of the family but was still in operation until 1952. Restoration, which began in 1996, has entailed replicating many 19th century mill components – including a new waterwheel and elevated sluice box.
