The site of the state's only working water-powered mill, War Eagle Mill has survived destruction multiple times and today produces its own brands of organic, stone-ground grains. Though the building burned several times, its 1973 reconstruction restored it to operational condition. Stock up on some flour or cereal created with the help of the building's 5.5 m (18 ft) wooden water wheel. Take a look at the mill's museum, full of antique household items dating from the 19th and early 20th centuries. For some real homestyle cooking, visit the restaurant for homemade waffles, coleslaw, beans, cornbread, and more.

We stopped off here while traveling through. The gift shop on both floors are rather small, but we spent about 30 minutes walking through them and another 30 minutes checking out the area. There was several fisherman by the water catching fish, kiddos swimming near the bridge and some families enjoying a picnic at the tables. There's a cafe upstairs but we didn't have time to eat. The mill working on the inside is very cool to see in person, especially for kids! We walked across the bridge to find a trail down to the water and a cool log cabin. There's also an area that appears to have fairs and events there. Very peaceful down by the water and a great backdrop for photos!
Unfortunately when we arrived the mill itself was closing so we didn't get much time to explore it. Though the one lane bridge is something to enjoy crossing, the waterfall created by the creek that drives the mill is very nice. Also the creek itself is something to stop and explore. You can creek walk and enjoy the water and scenery. The mill is quite picturesque. Beautiful area. We are hoping to be able to spend more time in the mill itself seeing what it has to offer. It is totally worth checking out the creek, the quiet, and the view of the mill with the bridge. If it's open go in and explore the mill.
