COLVIN RUN MILL
Located seven miles west of Tysons Corner, Colvin Run Mill Historic Site features a restored operational 19th century water-powered gristmill, the miller's house, and the early 20th century Colvin Run General Store, the remains of a once thriving community of Colvin Run, Virginia. Today the site is interpreted in terms of the 19th century American technology of Oliver Evans, inventor and millwright, the growth of communities around centers of commerce, and the work and social activities of area residents. Education programs, tours of the mill and miller's house, and special programs are conducted on a regular basis. People also enjoy shopping in the old general store, picnicking on the grounds, and feeding the hungry ducks.
