Chapman’s Mill was thought to be the tallest stacked stone building in the United States. It was built in 1742 by Jonathan and Nathaniel Chapman. During the Civil War, the mill was used as a meat curing center and distribution warehouse. When the Confederate Army left the area, they burned the mill so that it would not be taken over by the Yankee Army. By 1876, the Beverley family had restored the ruins to a very successful milling operation and the mill took on their name. Destroyed by arson in 1998, the Turn the Mill Around campaign has worked to stabilize and preserve the structure.
