Beautiful historic mill with a free museum, knowledge park rangers, and an amazing covered bridge and trail! We saw people fishing in the river and a family enjoying the weather in the water!

We stop here every chance we get, just to see the awesome beauty of this old grist mill, and covered bridge. A very relaxing place to spend some quality time with your family.

Bollinger has preserved a mill and a covered bridge, a combination that is all-too-rare. This place is remote, so get good directions, both to and from. I enjoyed the drive through the countryside.

Nice drive through a small town to the site. A neat old mill and covered bridge. I love the sound of the water rushing. One time the mill/gift shop was open and it's interesting inside. If you like history, drive out there.

Almost to cold outside to really enjoy our experience. The walk through the bridge blocked the wind. It would be a great place for picnics during any other season. The “historic” Cat liked the attention.

We went while staying in Cape Girardeau. Staff was friendly and you can see the oldest covered bridge in MO too. There was a little antique shop nearby as well. A self guided tour is in the first floor and you csn go downstairs too....More

I've been to the Bollinger Mill several times, often visiting when we take a family trip to Southeast Missouri. As a photographer, this is a very special site. Photo opportunities are vast --- the outside and inside of the Mill, the Covered Bridge, the waterways,...More

This is a beautiful Missouri State Historic Site. The Burfordville Covered Bridge was the first covered bridge built in Missouri. It was started before the Civil War and was completed in 1868. It has been restored and you can walk it to observe the construction....More
