A Brief Visit to Dayton, VA

Dayton is a charming and historic town in the Shenandoah Valley. I drove through there when Peggy and Bill visited so they could see for themselves.

Silver Lake Mill is just outside town in an area of well-kept Mennonite farms. We didn't take time to visit the mill's gift shop this time.

Below are a couple of nearby barns which I'll share with the Barn Collective.


  1. ...Linda, South Dayton, NY is part of Amish country. Dayton , VA is equally beautiful, thanks for sharing these beautiful rural scenes.

  2. What a beautiful area! We really need to get back up that way soon.

  3. Anywhere in the Shenandoah Valley area is GORGEOUS--whether it is a town or city or even the country area.... BEAUTIFUL... We have so many great memories of our visits to that area.... Thanks for sharing... I'd love to see that mill.
