A visit to George Washington’s grist mill & distillery is well worth the short trip down from Washington, D.C. It’s also a photographer’s paradise. Soft light filters in from open windows to illuminate the artifacts and reproductions throughout both buildings. I could have spent all afternoon there, finding different compositions. There are so many interesting details and vignettes. Tour guides dressed in period costumes are very knowledgeable and friendly. It’s great for the kids too!
