Edinburg Mills was built in 1848 by George Grandstaff (1787-1878). The mill was in operation until 1978. It was purchased and converted into a restaurant and closed in 1998. The building was purchased by the Edinburg Heritage Foundation in 2000. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an individual property, and it is located in the Edinburg Historic District, which is also on the National Register. The mill is also a designated Virginia Historic Landmark. The town of Edinburg had a historic preservation easement placed on the property that is held by the Department of Historic Resources. It is one of the few mills along the historic Valley Pike (Route 11) to survive the Civil War and serves as a prominent and scenic resource along this route, which is a designated Virginia Scenic By-way.
