    History:

    The Elkins, or Lebanon Flour Mill is one of the oldest industrial buildings in the Willamette Valley. Built between 1872 and 1878 by millwright Thomas J. Hannah, the flour mill was operated by William and Joseph Elkins, who promoted many projects that led to the development of the Lebanon area, including the Willamette valley and Cascade mountain wagon road, the canal system, and the railroad. The three story building is constructed of heavy timber framing with a steeply pitched roof. The building is clad with shiplap siding and corner boards, with vertical siding below the water table. One unique feature is the mortise and tenon construction, in which hand hewn timbers were fitted together without nails.

    A little history on the bridge... Located in the Hilton Community just southwest of the town of Blakely, Georgia, can be found the southernmost original covered bridge in the United States. The 96-foot long Coheelee Creek Covered Bridge was built in 1891 at the old McDonald Ford on Coheelee Creek. Built by John William Baughman, the bridge cost only $490.41, but still stands today as one of the most beautiful and unique landmarks in the

    Deep South.

    The Abo Mission church was built at the site of a Pueblo Indian village aptly situated on a main trade route between the Rio Grande Valley and several sources of salt (salt lakes to the east side of Abo Pass). The area was first visited by the Spanish in 1598 and 3 mission churches were built along that trade route in the early 1600s, but the church ruins seen here were constructed in 1659, but the "new" mission was never totally completed because Apache raids had begun to weaken the social fiber of the village (trauma accentuated by drought and famine) causing the village and mission to be abandoned in 1672. The site is near Mountainair, NM and at about 6500' elevation in pinyon-juniper vegetative zone. This is part of Salinas National Monument in the National Park System. The red sandstone blocks and red clay mortar comprising the walls are beautiful anytime, but especially so on a snowy day when the moisture darkens the stones and accentuates the contrast between stones and mortar, pine beams and hard packed trails. This is a 70 mile round trip from where I live. Tom

    History part of Camp Floyd and Fairfield - today it is a museum.

    The inn today houses the history of this are, as it was around during the Butterfield Stagecoach era, the Pony Express era, and the nation building era of Utah such as:

    Believing Mormons were rebelling against the laws of the United States, President James Buchanan dispatched 3,500 troops, nearly one-third of the entire U.S. Army, to suppress the rumored rebellion in Utah. No rebellion or war ever took place in Utah. However, the army stayed to monitor the Mormons, explore the western frontier, and provide safety for immigrants moving west to California, Oregon, and Washington.

    Camp Floyd, named in honor of Secretary of War John Floyd, was built by the army with the help of local citizens, providing a financial boost to the local economy. At their height, Camp Floyd was the largest military installation in the United States. The population of Camp Floyd and the town of Fairfield grew to 7,000, making it the third largest city in the Utah Territory.

    The inn was used by travelers on the Stagecoach, the Pony Express, and military. This building the school and some markers is all that remains
