This is one of the first mill stones or burns to be used in this section of Oregon. This was originally quarried in France and shipped around the horn from New York in 1850 by sailing vessel. In 1852, was transported by oxen team from Portland to Kings Valley and set up and operated by Roland Chambers on the banks of the Luckiamute River, as one of the first three grist mills in the state. This stone was in constant use for over 60 years. Many of the children and grandchildren of the Kings valley homesteaders still live in this area.
