Breckingridge Mill is a rare survivor of the grain and milling industry that figured significantly in the economy of antebellum Virginia. The three-and-a-half story brick structure was erected in 1822 for James Breckinridge, and is one of the oldest mills in the region. Breckinridge was a leading Federalist politician and landowner of southwestern Virginia. His mill replaced an 1804 mill also build for Breckinridge, and remained in operation until about 1939.
