James Mills Scottish Factor Store - Urbanna, VA
James Mills Scottish Factor Store
The James Mills Scottish Factor Store, also known as the Old Tobacco Warehouse, is one of only two structures remaining in the United States exemplifying the colonial trade pattern of exchanging tobacco for various items imported from Europe. During the 18th century, in an era when paper money and coins were almost non-existent, tobacco growers brought their crop to the factor store where they could trade it for finished goods from Europe. The building, which is undergoing restoration, is set in an evocative colonial setting just yards from the Urbanna, Virginia, waterfront on the Rappahannock River.
Hours: Daylight hours for grounds. Building not yet open.
Fees: None.
