Bollinger Mill State Historic Site

Park Information

Travel back to simpler days when business in Missouri was about the rushing of a stream over a dam and bridges were covered. Visitors to Bollinger Mill State Historic Site can watch corn being ground into meal at the massive four-story mill that dates to the Civil War era and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Or they can stroll through the Burfordville Covered Bridge, one of just four covered bridges that remain in Missouri. The site’s rustic setting offers ample picnicking and exploration opportunities along the Whitewater River.

As temperatures rise in the spring, it’s important to “be bear aware”. The American black bear population is increasing in Missouri and you may be fortunate enough to see one in their natural setting. Spring is the time when black bears emerge from their dens in search of food following the deep sleep of winter’s hibernation. The bear will forage for fruits, nuts, berries and other foods in the early spring. Their feeding habits will increase as food becomes more plentiful. Please remember that it’s important not to approach any wildlife you may see in our parks.
