This exhibit is about the major waterways and mills in the South Shore area. Major waterways of the area are White River, Buffalo River, and Crooked Creek. Many changes have occurred to the waterways over the years. White River has been dammed, the Buffalo River has become a national river, and there has been a controversy over gravel mining and who owns Crooked Creek.
The waterways and mills have helped the region grow. They provided transportation, recreation, ways to grind grain and food to eat. Now mills are almost extinct but add to the beauty and charm of the Ozarks.
The site will continue to grow so enjoy the information and come back often.
