Breneman-Turner Mill

This historic landmark was built ca. 1800 on Linville Creek by Abraham Breneman, who migrated from Pennsylvania in 1770. Due to its essential role in grinding grain into flour, hominy, and feed for cattle, the water-powered mill served as a center for community life during pioneer days. The mill is the only pre-Civil War mill remaining in Rockingham County with all its original grist mill equipment still in place. The mill survived burns from General Sheridan’s 1864 campaign, as neighbors helped put out its fires. Visit this Virginia Historical Landmark to learn more and explore.
