Edinburg Park and Pool
Early in 2002, the Town of Edinburg accepted the operation, maintenance and upkeep responsibilities of the Park and Pool located in Edinburg which was previously administrated by the Madison District Recreation Association. Since accepting this responsibility, the Town has established a committee made up of town officials and area residents responsible for the overall management and guidance of the Park and Pool, and has made many improvements to the facilities. The Town is committed to continuing the improvements in the coming years as the budget allows. The Town invites you to visit the Park and Pool to take advantage of the wonderful facilities. We also invite you to call or visit the Town Hall with any comments or suggestions.

The Edinburg Park consists of 4.75 acres located directly behind the Charterhouse School off Stony Creek Boulevard. The Park is a great place for a weekend picnic, to relax after work, or to enjoy a quiet evening with family and friends and affords a wonderful view of the Massanutten and Blue Ridge Mountains. The Park consists of three shelters, two tennis courts (one of which is lighted), two playgrounds and the Edinburg Pool. A basketball court and a ball field, on county property, are adjacent to the Park. The Park's shelters can be reserved for private gatherings. Please contact the Edinburg Town Office for reservations or additional information at 540-984-8521.

Shenandoah Valley Cultural Heritage Museum
at the Edinburg Mill
The historic 1848 Mill, one of the few mills to survive the burning during the Civil War has been tastefully and creatively adapted to house an area devoted to transportation in the County through the years: on the Great Valley Pike (US-11), the Shenandoah River and the nearby railroad.
The Edinburg/Madison District Museum has been relocated to the Mill and many additional exhibits have been added to display artifacts that demonstrate the rich local history of this agricultural area.
There are exhibits on the Civil War, as well as on the nation's first Civilian Conservation Camp, which was established just outside Edinburg. The main museum displays are located on the second floor, accessible by elevator and require a small donation fee.
The Museum includes a 50-seat theater where the film, "The Burning" is shown throughout the day. The film, based on the book by John Heatwole, was prepared expressly for the Edinburg Mill and copies are available there for sale.
The 3rd floor is devoted to period clothing, military uniforms and textiles.
A large museum gift shop is located on the first floor which offers a large variety of items for sale. An additional retail shop is also located in this area.
The lower level, with separate outside entrances, houses a wine shop and a restaurant coming soon!
The Edinburg Mill is located in Edinburg's Historic District. It is designated as a Virginia Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The building is now surrounded by a flood wall to protect it from the possibility of high water from nearby Stony Creek. Just inside the wall is a patio where the Memory Walk is located. This area is covered with granite pavers purchased by mill supporters, many in memory of those who have passed on. The pavers will continue to be sold until the area is full.
The Mill is owned by the Town of Edinburg, which is in partnership with the Edinburg Heritage Foundation, a 501(c)3 corporation, for the operation and fund-raising to support the historic structure.
Mill Hours: Monday-Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Sunday 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
