Bollinger Mill and Burfordville Covered Bridge State Historical Sites
In this video, we highlight what we did for 4th of July Weekend. Starting with Cars and coffee and then visiting the Bollinger Mill and Burfordville Covered Bridge State Historical Sites
Our day started with Cars and Coffee outside of our local Krispy Kreme. We had a chance to show off our Mustang and check out the other cars. There were a wide variety of classic and show cars. We then drove to the Bollinger Mill State Historical Site. The Bollinger Mill was in the early 1800s. Once at the Historical Site, we toured the 1st floor and basement areas. The 1st floor and basement areas were open for self-guided tours for free. The upper floors are typically only open once or twice a year. The first floor had historic milling equipment set up. The basement level has a window that allows you to see the water following under the mill from the river as well as when the turbines when into the water when the mill was working.
After the Bollinger Mill, we checked out the Burfordville Covered Bridge. The Burfordville Covered bridge is one of only 4 surviving covered bridges in Missouri. Built in 1858, the bridge provided an important link between farmers and the Bollinger Mill.
Lastly, we checked out the areas surrounding the Bollinger Mill and Burfordville Covered Bridge State Historical Sites. There is a nice park area with picnic tables, restrooms, and information about the Historic Sites.
