In nearby Eagle Point, you can visit one of Oregon's only operating water-powered flour mills. The Butte Creek Mill was built in 1873, and its millstones are still grinding out flour. After looking around at the workings of the mill, you can stop in at the mill store and buy a bag of flour or cornmeal. Also on this same block is the Eagle Point Museum, 301 N. Royal Ave. (tel. 541/826-4166), which unfortunately has very limited hours (Fri-Sun 10am-6pm). The Antelope Creek covered bridge is also here in Eagle Point.
