The Chapman’s Mill Historic Site

October is Archaeology Month

Find out more about our archaeological survey at the Chapman – Beverley Mill.


At the border between Fauquier and Prince William Counties, the Chapman / Beverley Mill cuts an imposing figure against its wooded backdrop. The massive five and one half story structure, originally built in 1742, is thought to be the tallest stacked stone building in the United States. The mill supplied food through five wars, but was gutted by fire in 1998. Today, though the arson left the structure a ruin, the stabilized mill walls and the mill store still stand as a reminder of the history of milling in Northern Virginia.
