It’s a fantastic route that gets you out of traffic and into some of Virginia’s beautiful small towns. From the top to the bottom, here are just a few ideas for stops along this historic path between the mountains.

If you take the trip on Route 11, you should definitely NOT miss The Museum at the Edinburg Mill, in Edinburg, VA. 3 complete floors filled with exhibits and artifacts, complete with a small theater showing a film of The Burning (during the Civil War). There are also 2 gift shops. The 1848 Mill survived the Civil War. There is an elevator and ample parking at 214 S. Main Street. It is open 7 days a week.
