The Original Hodgson Mill

The Original Hodgson Mill

The original Hodgson Water Mill still stands in Southern Missouri. It's a beautiful, peaceful place, near Bryant Creek and nestled amongst numerous unspoiled state parks. Take the road trip, but be sure to download a map or get a paper copy - not much GPS service in those parts!
