Thompson's Mills State Heritage Site is a state park that features a mill built in 1858, burned down in 1862 and rebuilt right away.

Thompson's Mills is a unique survivor of times past, chronicling 160 years of Oregon rural life and honoring the owners who adapted the mill to the changing world around it. It is the last water-powered mill in the state and its turbines can be seen in action on guided tours. A water right that predates statehood produces the water flow that still runs the milling machines for demonstrations today.The mill and grounds are open from 9:00 to

Very cool historic flour mill. As part of the tour, they run the machinery so you can see how it all worked. The grounds are very nice also.
