LOCKE'S MILL

Locke’s Mill

Locke’s Mill, a colonial-era grist mill located near the confluence where the Shenandoah River flows into the Potomac River near Berryville, has just been named to the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register is the official list of the nation's historic sites worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.

In 2016, Upperville resident Sandy Lerner purchased the mill and, in 2017, Locke’s Mill became one of only a few mills in the country to be Certified Organic by the Oregon Tilth Certified Organic program, the oldest organic certification agency in the U.S., established in 1978.

“We’re very proud this mill has been listed on the National Register,” Lerner said. “It’s a great recognition for a landmark that could have been lost like so many others.”

Locke’s Mill, built in 1876 by Thomas H. Locke, was originally one of many mills along the Shenandoah and Virginia Piedmont area that provided grinding services for grains coming over the Appalachian passes from the Shenandoah and Ohio valleys for sale in large coastal cities.

Originally a double mill, the present building ran two mill wheels. The mill has recently had the second wheel assembly restored and certified organic.

The grinding business, Locke’s Mill Grains, produces rye, wheat, corn, barley and spelt for area restaurants and distilleries and provides custom grinding services. Gentle Harvest, also owned by Lerner in Marshall, Va., sells the mill’s organic flour and uses it in its baked goods.

“Most of our customers have never had flour directly from the mill, and this flour is local, Certified Organic flour,” Lerner said. “The taste difference is amazing.

Grinding with stones keeps the flour cool, so the ‘germ’ or oil in the grain is not expressed out of the flour as it is with high-speed commercial steel grinding facilities. The flour has so much more flavor and texture, as well as retaining the original nutrition.”

Locke’s Mill flour may be purchased at Gentle Harvest (8372 W. Main St., Marshall, Va. 20115) or online at www.gentleharvest.com.
