Watermill, Ozarks, Siloam Springs, Arkansas, photo

Bitting Springs Mill - Study 02

Adair County, Oklahoma

Bitting Springs Mill was still operable in 1983 at the time of this photograph. The stone mills still turned when water was allowed to fill the steel overshot wheel. The mill was located about 11 miles SW of Siloam Springs, Arkansas/ Unfortunately these images are some of the last made of this striking Ozark watermill because it burned to the ground about two weeks after this visit.
