WITHROW SPRINGS STATE PARK

Withrow was once a community with a water driven mill placed near where this video was taken. Richard Withrow founded the settlement when he built the mill. Like most places where mills were built, a small community soon grew up there. Today there is no sign of that community, but the lovely small park attracts campers, fishermen and locals who want to visit the serene locale.

Richard's story and that of the small settlement are told in The Boston Mountains: Lost In The Ozarks, coming out in March.
