Renovated mills offer an advantage in the age of social distancing: space

The site’s developer said the first Ozark Mill at Finlay Farms in the Ozarks, along with a farm-to-table riverfront restaurant and general store, reopened in the fall, elevating and strengthening its foundation to reduce the risk of flooding. Had to go, Megan Stack. The mill, on a 40-acre estate, was built in 1833 and retired in 1992 as Missouri’s last commercially operated water mill. Bass Pro Shops founder and Ms Stack’s father, Johnny Morris, led the project, which also includes a coffee shop, a chapel, an organic farm and a historic truss bridge used for events.

Despite the challenges, developers are still looking for new opportunities to transform these buildings. Mr. Tufaro now has his eye on a former 1916 flour mill, 12 miles west of Baltimore in Ellicott City, MD, that he hopes to begin redevelopment in the first half of next year with 190 apartments, a restaurant overlooking the Petasco River. presents the scene. Historical museums, shops and possibly a brewery.

As mills attract more attention, some mills have become tourist attractions for those interested in their development. John Nolan, owner of Greenville History Tours, is taking six to eight people a week to tour 10 former textile mills that have been converted into loft apartments, arts centers, and rock-climbing facilities.

“Clothing was a big industry, so I think there is a curiosity to get deeper into what it looks like,” Mr. Nolan said. “It is part of America and something that should not be forgotten.”

Mr. Nolan and others note that mill workers often lived in homes adjacent to the factory, forming tighter communities. That history inspires people to revive the buildings as a social center.

That’s certainly the case for Ozark Mill at Finlay Farms. Plans for the site include a brewery, a speech, a self-guided history tour, and overnight accommodations.

“The authenticity and natural beauty of the area and the Finlay River will continue to attract people there,” said Ms Stack. “Elder generations of people in the Ozarks have memories of the mill.”
