Early Grist mills in the Ozarks were a more than a place to grind corn and wheat for flour. They were spots for the public to come on the weekends to see friends, talk and barter. Many of the locals had no money, so chickens, eggs, vegetables, dried meat, and hand-made items were traded amongst early settlers.
Susan Young, Outreach Coordinator of the Shiloh Museum, will paint a vivid and fascinating picture of Ozark grist mills and how they were an important part of our early communities.
When: 2:00 p.m. Saturday January 25th
