Thompson's Mills State Heritage Site

On Saturday we decided to visit the Thompson's Mills State Heritage Site. I was expecting the boys to complain about having to go somewhere. But not only were they ok with going . . . . they asked a TON of questions. The mill was a pretty interesting place. One of the things that facinated me was the fact that the mill has owned the local area water rights since before Oregon became a state. They still have the paperwork . . . but we didn't get to see that. Some of the beams inside the building were the original beems . . . you can still see the wooded pegs the used instead of nails. It turned out to be a really fun day trip.
