Geo-cachers have discovered Motor Mill as one stop in a series of caches. A container with a sign-in notebook and various simple toys inside was hidden at Motor. The coordinates of the container is posted on a Geo-cache website and searchers bearing GPS (Global Positioning System) units often come to test their skill.
