Ozarks Mill Tour, Ozark County, MO; our recent visit
Zanoni Mill in Ozark County, MO
Five Ozark Mills on a day-trip from our home; a grand experience - come join our fun! ;-)
This tour is one we have intended to take for some time, and that time finally came. We drove about an hour and half to the middle of the county, near Gainesville, then actually began the tour. You can follow the map on the website link provided, if you wish.
Three of the Mills provided extensive information and they are covered, with more photos, on featured lenses, as noted below.
We are my wife, Nancy, our daughter, Allison, and myself. Allison and I both took many photos. All of the photos on this lens are drawn from that pool of photo images.
The photo here is of Zanoni Mill, located on private property at the Zanoni Mill Inn and Ranch. They are kind enough to let us drive onto their property to view the Mill. The distinctive feature of this mill is the rare overshoot millwheel.

Old Dawt Mill
Old Dawt Mill
The Old Dawt Mill is a popular trout fishing and tourist vacation destination. It is also known for canoeing and kayaking on the North Fork of the White River. The mill building itself is now a restaurant. It was closed the day we were there, but we enjoyed seeing the grounds and lodging available, the pond behind the dam on the river, and the fine gift shop.

Hammond Mill in Ozark County, MO
Hammond Mill is located far off the beaten path on a gravel road. It is currently a residence and is being renovated by them. We were fortunate to be able to have a few words with them about the site, which we appreciated. We'd like to go back in a year or so to see how it progresses.
They pointed out that the big round window was installed by the previous owners.
