Butte Creek Mill well worth the trip

November 7th, 2013 by Julie

butte creek millButte Creek Mill is an historic site located in Eagle Point Oregon. It’s a living treasure and is the only remaining water powered mill grinding flour in Oregon.

The giant mill stones were quarried in France and installed into the mill over 130 years ago, they have been grinding grain into flour ever since.

In the general store there is an amazing variety of flours and cereals ground at the mill for sale and lots of other goodies too.

The mill was purchased in 2005 by Debbie and Bob Russell. Bob is a history buff and avid antique collector, next door to the mill you will find Bob’s pride and joy a wonderful antique store filled with collectables and memorablilia. If you are lucky and Bob is around, he will give you a personally guided tour,  he has a wealth of information about the mill’s history and the surrounding area. If you do see Bob tell him that Julie and Jean-Pierre from the Blue Moon sent you over, we love to go to the mill to collect the whole wheat flour that we use to make our bread served at breakfast at the Inn.

Enjoy your visit
