In the 1800s and early 1900s Aldie Mill reverberated with the rhythmic sounds of waterwheels, millstones, and farmers chatting with the miller about the weather and their crops. Charles Fenton Mercer located the grist mill here to capitalize on nearby sources of grain, the waters of Little River, and a network of roads. The Little River Turnpike (U.S. 50), connecting Aldie with the port of Alexandria, was nearly finished. And less than a mile to the west the highway would hook up with turnpikes through Ashby's Gap and the Snicker's Gap in the Blue Ridge. Ideally located, Aldie Mill turned Loudoun County's bountiful wheat harvest into flour for markets along the east coast and overseas.
