One of many scenic local attractions. The overlooks at Trail of tears, Fort D in Cape and Cape Rock are all worth some attention. The tour of the mill at Burfordville is like going back in time 200 years.

Just discovered Mt. Vernon's page! We have family connections with Burfordville and Bollinger County. The original mill was built by George Frederick Bollinger. He's buried in a small cemetery on the hill above the bridge and mill. You have to climb over fallen trees to get up there. Bollinger is pronounced "Bullinger" in that region.

No cemetery is haunted. What, are you a fourth grader? There is another mill in North Bollinger county not too far from an iron bridge, but it is not nearly as pretty, nor is it operational. It is very hard to take a picture of.

When I was in college at Southeast Missouri State University in the late 70's and early 80's we would go to the covered bridge at Burfordville to swim. You could drive across it then.
