Thanks for stopping in to the Shenandoah Valley Cultural Heritage Museum at The Historic Edinburg Mill in Edinburg, VA. We're glad you enjoyed your visit and we hope you'll tell your friends, and also come back again.
I had a feeling this would be a great museum and I wasn't disappointed. This old mill is one of only a couple that were not burned during the Civil War. The place is huge (3 floors) and took us almost 4 hours to see/read...More

Absolutely amazing! Definitely go! Eat at the restaurant too! Excellent service and staff very friendly. I had a BLT, it was homemade bread. The restroom is so cute. It felt like you were in someone’s home. I’d go back.
First, the location is in a super-rare pre Civil War mill; this one was spared being torched and you'll have to visit to get that story. Next, the museum tells the story of the local area, the town, the Civil War, the last centuries two...More
