Located along North Royal Avenue in the Eagle Point Historic District is the Butte Creek Mill. Established in 1872, the mill is the only water-powered grist mill still operating west of the Mississippi River. The mill, with its adjacent antique shop, is a step back in time with sights, sounds, and smells of old-time western and southern Oregon history. The high quality products produced by the mill adorn the shelves of many specialty shops and distribution points 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.
