Blanchette Chouteau Mill, St. Charles

When I was little, I loved this mill. Unfortunately, I don't think the waterwheel is real anymore, but rather the water is pumped up to the headrace and then it goes over the wheel. For a great book about mills, read David Macauley's great book on the subject.
