MILL MOUNTAIN: Beacon of the Valley
Located within the city of Roanoke, Virginia, Mill Mountain has been a beacon for generations of visitors. Named for a mill that was built at its base in the 1700’s, the mountain has had a long and storied history.
Over the years numerous attractions have called the mountain home - an incline, observation towers, a children’s zoo, an inn that later became a theatre, and much, much more. It is also home to the largest, free-standing, man-made illuminated star in the world.
This documentary, produced by Blue Ridge PBS, takes a nostalgic look the mountain’s history and its influence on the region today.
