Calvert Mill, Virginia





 Calvert Mill (Washington Mill, "Old Mill") 

Rush River, Route 211 / Route 522 Washington, Virginia

"...water powered grinding mill; water source is the Rush River. name comes from George Calvert, Jr. a local landowner, owned from 1779 to 1800. additions made in 1840 and 1860. bought in 1979 by Peter Kramer, who planned to restore, as of 2008, stood unused and disrepair..."

Taken during a day road trip in early March 2022. So, love those day road trips, just to get out, stretch one's legs and enjoy the Virginia scenery. What FUN!! We have a lot of times in Virginia where the weather is so back and forth temperature wise, it is quite odd, and you never know what to wear???!!!! So, you never put anything away. LOL!! This was a day where we had the windows in the truck down and enjoying the breeze. We had missed this beauty over and over; thankful the leaves were gone. Such an eye catcher, don't ya think??!? 

Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

A strange looking building, at first I thought part had been removed, and maybe it was just the siding...there's a sense that at one time it had been bigger, just looking at the roof edges.

I am so glad you commented on my blog...
This really is sad/beautiful...a whole bunch of emotions rolled into one. You know it was a beauty in its day! I bet it was something else. This is one of those times when I wish I could time travel back to see.

I’ve stopped there too! At one time someone had plans to restore it but I don’t know what happened.
