Butte Creek Mill
Established in 1872, the Butte Creek Mill is the only water-powered grist mill still operating west of the Mississippi River. The mill and neighboring antique shop provide a step back in time with sights, sounds, and smells of old-time western and southern Oregon history. Mill products adorn the shelves of its own on-site market, as well as specialty shops and stores across the country. The water wheel attached to the mill churns with the force of Little Butte Creek water. The creek bisecting the city is one of the most prolific fish spawning (Coho, Chinook Salmon, and Steel Head) streams in southern Oregon. Guided tours are available by appointment.
