This old Purina Chows feed mill is located directly across the railroad tracks from the Santiam Travel Station. It was originally built in 1881 as a grain warehouse by a cooperative of local farmers and was known simply as the Lebanon Warehouse. It had a capacity of 60,000 bushels, with six 20x20x20-foot grain bins that were later divided into smaller units over the years.  In 1907, Ralph Scroggin operated Ralph Scroggin Grain and Feed Company out of the building, and built an addition for grinding grain into animal feed. Though the land still belonged to the Union Pacific Railroad, the structure was eventually taken over by Linn County due to back taxes and in 2008 the county deeded it to the non-profit Scroggins Mill Rural Heritage, which plans to restore it.

Note: this kit is a representation of the prototype building, but some artistic liberties have been made to adjust for manufacturing techniques, size constraints and additional features to make the kit into a more versatile/useful presentation.
