A late operating mill in the east side of the Willamette Valley. Operating as of 1990 as a feed mill for local farmers and livestock owners. Was probably water powered early on, given its proximity to the Milk Creek, but later perhaps went the route of steam and finally electricity.

The mill is or was part of an Oregon Century Farm established in 1852. The mill was built in 1877 and the current farmhouse was built by Trollinger Friedrich in 1909. It has been in the same Friedrich family continuously since; and, is still currently owned and operated by Robert & Connie Friedrich today, December 7, 2005, and is located at 14822 S.
