This site is on the bucket list of many photographers. Certainly the site is photogenic. But, I suspect that there is more than that going for it. We like history! The site reminds us of a different time where such spring fed milling operations were vital to community life. Grain was ground to make bread, whether from wheat or corn. People gathered at mills, exchanged news and were able to socialize. It was not uncommon for additional shops to open meeting other needs of people who traveled in miles for milling services. Dances, games and picnics were all part of the Alley's busier days. A school was developed on this site (sorry no photographs of it). Church services were held in the school.
Add this site to your bucket list. Tom and I are finding that Arkansas and Missouri have lots of treasures to photograph.
