The Graves Mill Historical Park, an official Virginia Cultural Historical Site, offers a glimpse into the past commemorating the significance and history of the Village of Graves Mill. Within the Park is located a stone memorial and bronze plaque paying tribute to those 40 brave men from the community that served Virginia prior to and during the War Between The States. Also within the Park is a replica of the community’s intimate 1900’s post office building containing original post office furniture. Finally, a bronze plaque provides some of the earliest history of Graves Mill and the surrounding area.
The Park was created as a result of the community’s participation within the national and worldwide Jamestown 2007 Community Program honoring the 400th Anniversary of our country. The directors of the Jamestown 2007 Community Program presented to Graves Mill, the Virginia 2007 Community Program—‘Legacy for 2057 Award’, at the Jamestown Museum Awards Ceremony in March of 2008. The award was for the creation of the Graves Mill Historical Park and because of the contributions the community made towards the Jamestown 2007 Community Program.
The Graves Mill Historical Park is located at 52 Bluff Mountain Road, Graves Mill, Virginia near the Shenandoah National Park boundary and the Virginia Game Commission property’s.
