Thompson’s Mills is a Oregon State Heritage Site in Linn County near the town of Shedd. More than 150 years old, it’s the oldest water-powered grain mill in Oregon, where the waters of Calapooia River drive turbines you can still see running today for demonstrations.

Known for their hushed, ethereal music, Portland band Mimicking Birds play their song “Water Under Burned Bridges” at the mill, for the final video in our Road Sessions series. Mimicking Birds is on tour in the midwest, with shows next week in Lincoln, Bloomington and Cleveland. They’ll be at The Olympic in Boise July 22nd.
