March 25, 2018 -- War Eagle Mill Waterwheel
War Eagle Mill is a working gristmill in Benton County, Arkansas. A mill has been located on the site as early as 1832, but was destroyed three times, and last rebuilt in 1973. The mill currently operates as an undershot gristmill and houses a store and restaurant. It is the only working watermill in Arkansas and is powered by an 18-foot cypress water wheel. Organic grain, cereal and flour products are milled and sold commercially on site.
Although it is a 20th Century construction, the mill provides a fascinating opportunity to see an authentic water powered gristmill in operation. In addition, it is set on the banks of beautiful War Eagle River.
