A red mill set on the blue waters of Huzzah Creek is as pretty a picture as there is in Missouri, and that’s the setting for Dillard Mill State Historic Site. The site interprets one of the state’s best-preserved gristmills, completed in 1908 as the Mische Mill. It was operational until 1956 and was renamed Dillard Mill in 1975 when the State of Missouri took over management of the property. Most of the machinery in the mill is still intact and original to the building. If you like the outdoors, the site’s location on Huzzah Creek in the Ozarks provides plenty of opportunities to explore, fish, hike, and picnic.
