In 1771, after shifting from tobacco to wheat as his main cash crop, George Washington erected a new mill along Dogue Run. The innovative farmer-statesman added a wharf and began sending his finely milled flour by ship to Europe and the West Indies.
In 1791, as soon as inventor Oliver Evans patented his milling machinery, Washington invited him to Mount Vernon to install the revolutionary technology in his own mill. Today you can treat yourself to grains that have been stone-ground by water power at George Washington’s Gristmill. Recipes for cornbread, pancake mix and hoecakes are included.
