Hodgson Mill


Hodgson Mill is located on Highway 181 where the road crosses Bryant Creek. There are bags of flour sold in grocery stores across the nation that show a picture of this mill on their cover.

The mill has recently been restored and is open to the public. It has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

welcome signSycamore Access is located about 1000 feet from Highway 181, just below the low water bridge over the Bryant at Hodgson Mill. This beautiful area is open to the public for fishing, swimming, and boating.

Floods sometimes occur along Bryant Creek in the Hodgson Mill valley, making Highway 181 impassable. This major flood happened in the spring of 2004 after a week of very heavy rains. You can see the mill on the other side of the raging river.
