War Eagle Mill
With a foundation built in 1832, War Eagle Mill is the only working mill in Arkansas, still powered by an 18-foot cypress waterwheel. It is believed to be the \"only undershot water wheel currently in operation in the United States.\" War Eagle Mill uses only the finest quality grains, ground fresh daily, to produce its products. The mill, gift shop and restaurant are open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Our family first visited War Eagle when our kids were in elementary school. We have gone back many times when vacationing in Arkansas. They are now grown with families of their own. We are doing an extended family vacation this year and when we asked them what they would like to do while in Arkansas their first response was "visit War Eagle Mill". So in 2005 we will pass this tradition on to the next generation!
I was raised in a family that never went on vacation. Now in my 40's with a family of my own, that is all I want to do. Eureka Srings is our home away from home and War Eagle is a must stop every time. We have taken our time and walked everywhere. I highley recomend taking a stroll in the river. (wear water shoes on the rock bottom) Listen to the history and keep it looking nice, we plan on "going home" again real soon.
Our daughter took us there while visiting her from Georgia over the holidays last year. Our 2 grandsons (ages 12 and 14) were with us and I'm sure they were amazed at the site of the mill and how it functions. We were thankful to have seen part of Americana still in play. Will probably visit there again and enjoy another bowl of beans and cornbread.
If you happen to be driving by (probably on the way to War Eagle Cavern) the mill is well worth a stop. The working grist mill part is interesting and they have a quant gift shop (the honey is excellent). The restaurant provides sustinence but little else and I suggest making plans to eat elsewhere.
We loved our visit to the mill. The food was great. The gift shop even greater and the scenery was wonderful. It was so restful and relaxing. The security guard/ tour guide was wonderful. I can't wait to go back. We ate the breakfast, served on the first floor since my husband is in a wheelchair, and it was a true delight. Everyone swears they have the greatest beans and cornbread and its on my list for the next trip.
If you're in the area, definitely take the time to visit War Eagle Mill. They have wonderful whole grain flour that makes the best bread! Try their mixes, they are fantastic! The mill and river are beautiful. A great spot for lunch, either in the restaurant or a picnic.
WE VISITED THE MILL THIS WEEK. WE DECIDED TO TRY THE FOOD ON THE THIRD FLOOR AND WERE RECOMMENDED TO GET THE BEANS AND CORN BREAD. THE PEOPLE ARE VERY NICE, BUT IT SIMPLY WAS THE WORST MEAL I THINK I HAVE EVER BEEN SERVED IN MY LIFE. MAYBE THE OTHER FOOD IS GOOD, BUT THIS WAS AWFUL!!!
I was born and raised in Rogers, Arkansas. Through out my entire life, we have visited War Eagle Mill several times. And now as adult and mother still living in Rogers, I take my children often. In the summer we visit on more than one occasion. Besides the gift shop and the food, the outdoor sites are breath taking. We have been blessed here in Arkansas and would love for everyone to come take in our beauty.
