Chance of a lifetime to own this historic property known as The Reed Creek Mill. The mill & dam were build originally in 1858 & operated a foundry during the Civil War. The mill was damaged by a flood in 1878. A new mill was built in 1902 on the site & operated for 30 years processing flour & other products.
This was also Wytheville's 1st power plant. The mill closed in 2005. Purchased in 2012 the mill underwent extensive renovations & is now included on the National & Virginia Historic Registries.
The mill is timber-frame, 4 story building with metal roof & siding. There is a new 10 ft deep deck that spans the length of the mill's façade. A vertical flush board siding warehouse , 50' X 70' built in 1950 has concrete floor & free standing offers multiple options.
A 768 sq ft building known as The Egg House built in 1950 has been totally renovated into a delightful cottage ideal for guests or rental. A single story brick house was built in 1970 with 1,807 sq ft also renovated.The residence offers delightful outdoor decking for enjoying the view & sounds of the setting.
A new retaining wall has recently been installed to offer additional parking & accessibility. The large open warehouse has oversized loading doors & an open floorplan giving opportunities for so many uses. The mill itself with the beautiful dam & waterway is open & could be an impressive home that could be a dream come true whether for a full time residence or that destination for retirement & living happily ever after.
This could be such a beautiful setting for weddings, parties, galas or that business you have always dreamed of in a setting that is picture perfect. The property is adjacent to property designated by the Town as a future park site with the historic bridge adjacent to the property under restoration. There is a study on record as well that there is abundant capability to manufacture power from the dam offering the opportunity to be truly self-sustaining. This is a must see!
