Alley Spring Mill, located in the Ozarks National Scenic Riverways, was built in 1894 by George Washington McCaskill and Jenoah H. Whitacre. It replaced an earlier mill that was built in 1868. Alley Spring Mill was used to turn wheat and corn into meal. It also was a gathering place for area farmers and settlers of the then remote area of the Ozarks. A community developed near the mill. It was named after John Alley, a miller and prominent local person. It is one of the most photographed buildings in the state.
The Ozark National Scenic Riverways was established in 1964, making it America's first national park area to protect a wild river system. The Ozark National Scenic Riverways is known for its caves, springs, sinkholes and losing streams. Visitors can enjoy water activities, such as floating, canoeing, tubing, swimming and fishing. Additionally there are opportunities for hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing. Over 130 miles of waterways and 300 identified caves exist within the park.
