Water powered mills were very important to the Shenandoah Valley during the 1800s. Significant changes in stream elevation made for ideal conditions to use mills as a power source. The Osceola Mill is one of seven mills on the Marl Creek. Only two of the original seven remain standing today, the McCormick Farm Mill on the upper part of Marl Creek and the Osceola Mill on the lower.
The Osceola Mill was named by McCormick in honor of the Native American chief Osceola of the Seminole tribe. Functioning as a flour mill for 120 years, the mill remains structurally intact today supported by massive hand-hewn chestnut beams.
The Osceola Mill is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley only minutes from some of the most gorgeous sites in the area. Whether you are looking for an outdoor adventure, a scenic drive, or day at a romantic winery, or a historic you'll find it here.
