Dogwood Mill & Artifact Hall

The 25-foot Dogwood Mill protects the traditions of the gristmill, conserves the history of the Ozarks and preserves the heritage of the miller. This wheel is powered by the cold water of Little Indian Creek, which winds through the canyon. The operating stones are recovered original gristmill stones from Franklin County, Virginia that now will provide the public with an up-close and interactive presentation about Ozark mills.

You can see it in action during your visit, then head over to the artifact hall. there, you’ll get a look into the Canyon’s rich history, see lithics from the native Osage and ancestral Osage tribes, all stretched across Little Indian Creek.
