WAR EAGLE, AR -- War Eagle Mill took this Labor Day to celebrate one of its hardest workers, the water wheel.

They had a celebration surrounding the wheel that's recently been remodeled.

The entire restoration took over 300 hours to complete.

Afterwards, a woodworker took the old materials and made them into art and had picture frames and other tools for sale at the event.

There was also a lunch deal, music, and plenty of tradition.

"It's one of the only undershot waterwheels and working grist mills, so we're pretty famous in Arkansas ands we're still working and grinding the old traditional way," says Liz Kapsner, Marketing Director for War Eagle Mill.

This was war eagle mill's first ever labor day celebration.
