Ed and Lizzie Mabry must have gotten a thrill the first time water reached the gristmill they built more than a century ago. You can relive that excitement and marvel at the new flume your donations helped build during a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2 p.m., Thursday, October 3 at Mabry Mill, milepost 176. The event also marks the completion of new shake roofs on historic structures at the site. The project is a collaboration between the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, National Park Service, and National Park Foundation with donations matched by a Centennial Challenge grant. We hope you will join us to celebrate this job well done.
