Superintendent Bill Black has announced that the preservation work on Alley Mill has been progressing well and is ahead of schedule. If there are no unforeseen delays in the next couple of weeks, Ozark National Scenic Riverways tentatively plans to open Alley Mill on weekends in July and daily from August 1-17. The mill will be closed again beginning August 18 to allow for the completion of the accessible walkway into the mill. Visitor safety is the primary reason for closing the mill and nearby lawn while work is ongoing. During periods of work activity, visitors can still cross the bridge and walk the trail around Alley Spring. Rangers are stationed on the grounds near the mill to greet visitors and answer questions. The Alley Spring General Store and Storys Creek School are also open daily throughout the summer. The current preservation efforts will allow the mill to be enjoyed for years to come. For information on Ozark National Scenic Riverways, call (573) 323-4236.
