One thing that you can be assured of is that once Johnny Morris completes this project, it will be a first-rate attraction, and the grounds, along with the building(s), will be stunning. He is a huge blessing to the area, and has improved so many things for the general public to experience and enjoy, imo.

An historic mill in Ozark will soon be on the move.

Yes, the move is temporary.

Johnny Morris owns the mill off of McCraken Road and 4th Street. Bass Pro Shops announced Wednesday it will move the Ozark Mill 30 feet to the west. Expert House Movers is a St. Louis company with four decades of experience moving property.

Crews have spent the last few weeks raising the mill off its foundation along the Finley River. It appears now about five feet off the ground. The move is necessary to allow crews to rebuild its foundation in efforts to maintain the building’s structural integrity. The mill will be moved back to its historic location on the Finley River later this year once foundation work is completed, which could take several months. Once back in place, interior and exterior restoration of the mill will begin.

The working grain mill dates back to 1833.

Wouldn't it be cool if they found a cave under it?? Maybe one that was once used during the Civil War as a clandestine "Underground Railroad"? Or maybe where the locals would have gathered to hide from the "Bloody Baldknobbers" and/or Quantrill's Raiders? The way Mr. Morris astounding good luck seems to follow him around, I wouldn't be surprised...Stay Tuned! But in all seriousness, I firmly believe he MAKES his own "good luck" due to hard work, calculated risk taking, and being able to put himself into just the "right place at the right time" to capitalize on his business instincts.

Ozark Mill To Include Ice Cream And Coffee Shop

As the restoration of the historic Ozark Mill continues, soon there will be a new ice cream and coffee shop inspired by the area's rich history.




“The Post” ice cream and coffee shop located across the Finley River from the mill will open within the first half of next year.

This shop is a new component of Johnny Morris’ vision to pay homage to the past while enhancing the overall site.

In a news release, the Bass Pro group says the shop will serve as a connection point to help link the Ozarks Mill site to the nearby historic square in downtown Ozark.
