EAGLE POINT, Ore. – A Southern Oregon landmark destroyed in a fire on Christmas Day, 2015 is seeing support from a locally-based company.

Bob Moore of Bob's Red Mill natural foods company is donating $100,000 to the restoration of the Butte Creek Mill.

The mill was built in 1872. Before the fire, it was the only water-powered grist mill west of the Mississippi that was commercially grinding flour.

Moore's donation will go toward the campaign committed to returning the mill to its original glory.
