Greer Mill, a roller mill built in 1899, was powered b cables running up from the Greer Spring branch. When cheaper sources of power, and flower became common, the mill was closed in 1920. The mill is located near the Eleven Point National Wild and Scenic River in Missouri.
The 138-mile-long Eleven Point River flows from southern Missouri into northern Arkansas. Its flow more than doubles from Greer spring, adding over 200 million gallons of water per day. According to U.S. Geological Survey, the name comes from the French word pointe, a wooded point of land marking a river bend. French Voyageurs marked distance counting these points of river bends.
A 44 mile section of the river was established in 1968 as The Eleven Point National Wild and Scenic River. The picturesque river is one of the eight initial units of the National Wild and Scenic River system. This designation created a shoreline that is mostly undeveloped.
