Bollinger Mill, Burfordsville

This week we'll be looking at the stunning Bollinger Mill in Burfordsville, Missouri. It is accompanied by one of Missouri's last covered bridges.The mill is a massive structure, and is probably one of the largest in rural Missouri; the stone portion is older than the brick structure above.The weeds had gotten awfully high, and it was somewhat difficult to take pictures of the mill with the bridge.What is truly wonderful is the continuing rural setting of the mill; stretching out from the mill is nothing by a small town on one side and pasture and fields on the other side of the river.

    Thanks, Chris! Your photos are excellent, as usual.
    The town is 15-20 miles West of Cape Girardeau.
