Old Flour Sacks

Thompson's Mills State Heritage Site
32655 Boston Mill Drive
Shedd, OR 97377

Examples of the sacks the mills distributed flour in and their many uses (garment fabrication) after the flour was depleted. Thompson's Mills just celebrated its 150th birthday last Saturday, though it hasn't been in production for 20 years. The State Parks Department hopes to open the grounds year-round to visitors starting this October.
