Burwell-Morgan Mill, also known as the Millwood Mill, is a historic grist mill located at Millwood, Clarke County, Virginia. It was built about 1785 by Gen. Daniel Morgan and Lt. Col. Nathaniel Burwell, who both served in the American Revolution. Burwell was the project's financier and Morgan managed the construction. The project overseer was L.H. Mongrul, whose initials and the date 1782 are carved in a stone in the mill's wall. The mill operated until the 1950s. In 1964 it was donated to the Clarke County Historical Association, which finished restoration in 1970 and operates the mill as a museum.
The mill is a two-story structure with gable roof measuring approximately 45 feet by 60 feet. It consists of a down slope basement and first level of stone topped by a frame second story and attic addition, added around 1876. It features a rebuilt water wheel of Peruvian mahogany.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1969. It is located in the Millwood Commercial Historic District. The nearby miller's house was restored in 1975.

  • There are lots of picnic benches in the shade or sun near the mill and in the park. Couples, families, and dogs have plenty of space to enjoy the mill pond and stream.

  • Condition of historic building that is still operating is nothing short of amazing. They grind and sell products on Saturdays. Gorgeous setting.
