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.

Well, I just can't believe how nice this little stop turned out to be. The stream, the covered bridge, the Mill, and the dam all were extremely well preserved. I enjoyed walking the grounds and reading the wonderful background information on the kiosks. The Mill was fascinating. I really enjoyed going downstairs to see how the water went through the...

Even the drive to this place is beautiful. Way out in a rural area. Great piece of history. One of only four remaining covered bridges is next to the Mill. Very helpful staff explains equipment & history. A friendly Mill cat greets you & encourages you to rub her head! They have park benches to view the waterfall next to... More

You will not be disappointed if you decide to visit The Bollinger Mill and the old covered bridge in this well kept park. The country setting is just awesome! Please vote.

Bridge & Mill both nice to see. The grounds were nicely kept and the signage outside informative. People were fishing & kids playing in the water below the falls. The mill had already closed when I arrived but have heard it is a good tour. Interesting to see & only about 13 miles off of I-55.

Earlier in the day we started out at another historical place, someone there grew up in this town not far away and suggested it as a stop on our day trip. It was well worth the short drive from Marble Hill to Burfordville so experience this place. The river, the mill wheel and the inner workings of the mill, the... More

Didn't know anything about this place until my husband saw the road sign. Is beautiful, and I was amazed how clean it was. Very historic, information plaques every where, very informative.

After we checked out of our hotel room, my husband and in-laws and I went to go play some board games on a shaded picnic table. The park was very pretty and it was nice to have the beautiful covered bridge just around the bend. Bring a Frisbee and some snacks and you can absolutely have a nice time with... More

The mill and covered bridge were very nice. We did not do any hiking, but it looked like there was a nice trail to hike.

Springtime is a neat time to visit this old mill and covered bridge. Tiny wildflowers are everywhere! *If you enjoy visiting here, too, please give me a vote, Thanks!*
