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.
