Wirh daughter Kathy driving my Honda we turned into Mill Street at White Cottage, a tiny Muskingum County, Ohio town on the Jonathon River. Carrying a print of the 1939 pohoto that I took from a train, I confirmed that it was the exact same mill.
I consider a winter shot from the old tracks may possibly show the mill from the the river side.
Thanks to mabloodhound and Hank Randall!

Mabry Mill, Meadows of Dan, Blue Ridge Parkway, Milepost 176, Virginia
Mabry Mill was built by Edwin Boston Mabry (E.B. Mabry). E.B. Mabry returned to Floyd County in 1903 and began the building of the mill. It was very first a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, then became a sawmill. By 1905 it was in operation as a gristmill. By 1910 the front portion of the mill was completed and included a lathe for turning out wheel hubs, a tongue and groove lathe, a planer and a jig-saw. Between 1905 and 1914 E.B. Mabry purchased adjacent tracts of land, mainly for the purpose of acquiring a lot more water power.
