on Variety Mill Road, Norwood, Virginia 

Wow, the internet is not much help on this beauty, "Society For The Preservation of Old Mills": www.spoom.org  (if you wish to see the website for yourself, just being plain curious and whatnot??!) ...we even checked that website out, but no luck??! I am always amazed that mills are not taken care of, unless like a community has taken up a point to keep them going and whatnot??!! Makes me wonder why folks don't realize the importance of keeping things old or unique. Why are folks so ready to let go of the past and move on when a lot of what is "old (antique)" is made so much more great (i know my English is lacking there, but it is like why is it the saying is "if it ain't broke, why fix it??!") i mean i get that new technology is great for some purposes, yes, but not always. Makes you think?!?!? I think a lot of folks are amazed that we go out of our way to see these historical sights. Some might think, why bother???!?!?!?! I enjoy it. It's interesting, entertaining and should happen.

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

It's odd because a lot of people hold on to the past in harmful ways. It would better if we held onto these old buildings.

I guess they have to weigh out whether it is worth saving and renovating buildings. It's tough bring some up to code.
Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. Your wonderful spirit shines through and makes me smile.

I am always just curious about Virginia’s historic places.
