The northeast corner of the mill. The lower building in the foreground was added about the 1930's, when the mill became more of a feed store. The corner of the mill, white painted portion, has two Pacific Fruit Express 1912-1913 wooden, refrigerated railcars hidden within the enclosed walls. They were enclosed within the building in 1937 to use as insulated cols storga for dressed turkeys, a successful side business carried on at Scroggin's Mill in the mid-1900's. The rail cars are perhaps the best preserved examples of such in country.

Farmway Feed and Seed, the name the mill was known by in the later half of the 1900's, particularly from the 1960's on until it closed.

The old restored warehouse across Grant Street from the mill block perhaps was used for feed, grain, or hay storage by Scroggin in the last half of the 20th century.

This house at the southwest corner of Grant and S. Fifth Street is the Stewart-Sterling house, built in 1893. It surely saw almost all the happenings during the operating years of Scroggin's Mill.

Diagonally northwest of the mill, east of the tracks and on the north side of W. Ash St. is the comodious dwelling of P.M. Scroggin. The fanciful, Victorian home, built in 1900, even features a large ornamental horseshoe as trim on the upper front porch.
