Description: After receiving a Spanish land grant, George Frederick Bollinger led a group of families from North Carolina to this area and in 1800 began construction of a mill and dam on the Whitewater River. The mill quickly became a success and by the 1820s a road linked Bollinger Mill with the surrounding communities. Bollinger himself became well known, entered politics, and served as a senator in Missouri's first general assembly. This event allows visitors to take a journey to the Bollinger family cemetery to learn more about the family and 19th century burial traditions. Please wear comfortable clothing and footwear.
