An Amherst, Virginia Historical Landmark

​​Brightwell's Mill is always striving to maintain a presence in the community, hosting events throughout the year, the most notable being the Christmas open house.


Since 1826, Brightwell's Mill has been a locally owned and operated mill located in Madison Heights, Virginia.

Serving Amherst County Since 1826


Brightwell's Mill was originally created in the early 1800s, and was constructed a second time following a destructive flood in the August of 1942.

Despite no longer currently functioning as a working mill, we strive to preserve this landmark for future generations.
