Bollinger Mill State Historic Site

Five fabulous fall drives

Hawn State Park has the reputation as being Missouri’s prettiest, especially in fall. Ed Schott can look out the window of his office and see why.
“There are lots of vibrant reds and yellows in the oaks and hickories, and we have one of the largest stands of shortleaf pines in the park system,” said Schott, who is the superintendent of the park in southeast Missouri.

Daily grind: Historic mills rockin’ and rollin’ at Missouri State Parks

Missouri is getting its two century-old, water-powered gristmills back into working shape.

A crew arrived at the Dillard Mill State Historic Site south of Steelville in late summer and finished repairs by mid-September. The workers will be heading next to the Bollinger Mill State Historic Site near Cape Girardeau.

Although open for visitors, the two mills had been idle for several years while awaiting repairs.
