On Site Features:
What kind of visit you can have: The historic area shares the grounds of the WVU Jackson's Mill State 4-H Conference Center.  The original 1841 mill now serves as a museum, but Blaker Mill, relocated to the site, began operation in 1993.  Stonewall Jackson spent much of his childhood here, working in the saw and grist mills of his uncle's farm. The Mountain State building was erected on the side to house exhibits and craft demonstrations.
