Inscription.  "Joseph Campbell established Rolla Mills across from the depot on the east side of the tracks between Seventh and Eighth streets in 1871. It was an important commercial enterprise for both townspeople and rural residents of the county, and was among the first efforts to maintain Rolla's importance as a regional commercial center after the soldiers went home and the rails moved on."

John F. Bradbury, Jr., Rolla The Old Town (St. Louis: G. Bradley Publishing, Inc., 2002), p. 13.
