SPRING CREEK MILL
Spring Creek Mill, located on the banks of Spring Creek in
Hurley was built in 1892 by James Reynolds and Pryor Sanders. The first
miller was E. R. Scott. The mill is now owned by the Christenson family
of Hurley. They have plans for a museum and gift shop in the mill. Mr.
Christenson recently acquired a burr stone from the old Reynold's Mill
which was located a few miles from Hurley. He stated that the stone was
all that was left of the Reynold's Mill which burned in the Civil War.

On April 3, 2005 the old Spring Creek Mill burned to the
ground. Kathryn Buckstaff who wrote the account for the Springfield Newsleader
said it best, "The acrid smell of charred history is all that remains of
a community's heritage after the Spring Creek Mill burned to the
ground Sunday afternoon."
