Return to Silver Lake

Silver Lake Mill is one of those places I find hard to drive past without stopping to take a picture. It's on the west side of Dayton, Virginia on County Route 701.

There's a Civil War Trails sign nearby telling how the Bowman Mill on this site was burned during Sheridan's Campaign in 1864.

See also the pictures I took at Silver Lake a year ago.


  1. It looks beautiful. No wonder you like to stop and take photos xx

  2. Thanks, Pat. There are a couple of swans that add to the beauty of the lake.
