There are many famous historical sites in the Washington area that attract tourists. But one of the lesser-known attractions is a 19th century grist mill just outside the nation’s capital. Still operating the same way it did 200 years ago, the mill draws some visitors and offers fresh grits and flour for local residents and restaurants. VOA’s June Soh takes us to Colvin Run Mill, where the 19th century meets the 21st.
