The Butte Creek Mill Catches Fire and Burns

A somber shadow fell upon the mill as tragedy unfolded. Initially, the loss of Debbie left the mill in the care of her grieving husband and daughter, a poignant reminder of life’s fragility.

However, fate dealt another devastating blow when, on Christmas Day, a ferocious fire ravaged the mill, reducing it to ashes and embers. The community rallied with remarkable resilience and solidarity in the face of such adversity. Swiftly mobilizing, initiatives to rebuild the mill were set into motion, propelled by a collective determination to resurrect this beloved cornerstone of the community.

The Mill stones were not harmed in the fire, and the basement remained intact.
