When it comes to beautiful places in Virginia, it would be nearly impossible to single out just one. Visions of the Blue Ridge Mountains, or the Eastern Shore, or rural farmland come quickly to mind. HouseBeautiful recently published a list of the 50 Most Beautiful Places In All 50 States, and Virginia’s nominee is one with relatively few visitors. The historic Mabry’s Mill is tucked away off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and it looks like something out of a storybook. The following photographs provide just a glimpse of its extraordinary beauty and fascinating history.
