Community rallies to rebuild historic mill
Butte Creek Mill has been a mainstay of the economy in Eagle Point and its surroundings since it first opened its doors in 1872. More recently, the mill — still in commercial operation — was a popular destination for tourists, who came by the busload to tour the mill, visit the gift shop and walk over the Little Butte Creek covered bridge into town. After a fire destroyed the mill in 2015, the community of Eagle Point rallied around rebuilding efforts.
