More about this marker.
Regarding Boegel and Hine Flour Mill. Although there is not a separate sign, the mill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the centerpiece of Fair Grove, Missouri's, historic district.
The flour mill, originally named Boegel & Hine, is unusual for a couple of reasons. 1. It stayed in operation until 1969 when, known as the Wommack Mill, it closed its doors. 2. It was steam-powered rather than water powered.
When visiting, walk around behind the mill to view the cabins on the property and the old agricultural implements in the open air. Also, be sure to note the old mill wheel used as a planter at the back of the adjacent house.
