Thompson Mills State Historical Site, located near I-5 in Shedd, Oregon, offers a glimpse into the
area's early farming and irrigation days with an impressive number of interpretive displays and knowledgeable staff.
Opened in 2007, visitors can try their hand at a miniature grinding wheel, hear the history of the mill, and learn how the
mill used water from the nearby Calapooia River to grind grains. See more at Pit Stops for Kids: http://bit.ly/9YczV4
