Washington Mill dates back to the early 1700s when it was owned by the Thornton family. The mill pond covered over 10 acres & ranged from 5-10 feet deep, filled by fresh water streams and regulated by raising and lowering nine flood gates located around the pond.The mill also served as a Post Office, a place for baptismal services and as a water reservoir in the event of drought or fire. The pond was stocked with fish and was one of the best fishing spots in the county. In the winter the pond was frozen over and the dirt road near the mill was often filled with wagons bringing the young and old who enjoyed ice skating! This mill was the longest running mill in the county, remaining in operation until 1942 when the dam broke. Don't miss your opportunity to own this beautiful property rich with local history! Located close to 301 bridge, Colonial Beach, Fredericksburg & Dahlgren base.
