Historic 1870 Grist Mill Open for Weekend Guided Tours

The National Park Service, Buffalo National River Partners, and the Gorgas Science Foundation are pleased to announce free ranger-guided tours of the Boxley Grist Mill on Arkansas Highway 43 in Boxley Valley (Newton County) each weekend in October. These tours will be offered between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays and last about 30 minutes.  From 1870 until the 1950s this grist mill was handed down through generations of the Villines family and was an important part of community life.  Now, in the 21st century, the mill is managed under a partnership between the National Park Service and the Gorgas Science Foundation.

Entrance to the mill does require climbing several steps and  a short walk from the parking area is necessary to reach the building.  The closest restroom, picnic area, and water are located northeast of the mill at the Lost Valley Day Use Area.

New to the tour this year is the addition of the “Fishing Cabin” behind the Clyde Villines house near the millpond which has been restored by the Gorgas Foundation to its 1940s-era condition with many original/period furnishings. The cabins represent one of the early efforts to develop the post-World War II tourism industry in the Ozarks by providing a place for tourists to stay and fish for catfish in the millpond.

For more information, or to schedule a group tour for 10 or more people, please contact the Steel Creek Visitor Contact Station at 870-861-2570  or email BUFF_information@nps.gov.

200 EAST RUSH GALLERY  is featuring the works of 2 members of the Harrison Art League, Ann Graffy and Holley Jones.  Their show is called WHY NOT and runs through October 30th, so please stop by and meet these artists at their closing reception from 5 to 7 pm.
Ann Graffy is an artist living in the Ozark Mountains. 
After earning a degree in art from the University of Arkansas, Graffy went on to teach in St. Louis, New Orleans, Fort Smith, and elsewhere before pursuing a career in sculpture. Her work appears in galleries across the country. In recent years she has rediscovered her passion for paining, especially the stories found in the human face.
Holley Jones is an artist living west of the Boston Mountains.
In my heart I am an Abstract Expressionist-Abstracted but still accessible. My role is not to report on the visible but to reveal the unknown. My work is inspired by my lifestyle, family and the weather. 
These works of Art astonish me with their importance to exist.
