Tenmile is on Highway 42 between Winston and Camas Valley. There are two routes from Roseburg to the coast and this is the way I generally go.
The name is derived from the fact that a man who lived in Happy Valley drove cattle from the valley and grazed them at the place now known as Tenmile Valley. The distance was about 10 miles, hence the name.
Tenmile boasts a restaurant
and a general store
that includes a gas station
and a post office.
I stop at the store occasionally to pick up a snack or a drink and the clerks are always friendly.
I think an interesting point is the “Jesus” sign on the store evidently proclaiming the owners faith.
