Long Description:
There are two trails signs here: "Edinburg Mill" and "The Stony Creek Line".

Per the website (link below):
This mill, opened in 1850, survived the burnings ordered in late September and early October 1864 by Union Gen. Philip Sheridan. More than two years earlier Confederates used Stony Creek (which provided the mill's power) as a defensive line. A sharp battle on the line near the mill in late March 1862 delayed a Federal advance on the Valley Pike.

The mill is now a historical museum for the city.
