Graham's Forge Mill is a historic grist mill located in the community of Grahams Forge, Wythe County, Virginia. The mill was built about 1890, and is a five-story, rectangular, wood frame building on a limestone foundation. Atop the cross-gable standing seam metal roof is a cupola with a finial, decorative cresting on the ridges, and a late-Victorian-styled lightning rod. Also on the property are the contributing smokehouse with oven / kettle used for hog scalding, corn crib, grain storage facility, oven / kettle remains, and mill dam.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
