War Eagle Mill
Experience a bit of Arkansas's past by traveling to War Eagle Mill, which is located about 30 minutes from Best Western Inn of the Ozarks. The original mill was built in 1832 but was lost to fire as were several subsequent mills. The current incarnation was created in 1973 using the same waterwheel from a century before. Take a tour of the state's only working mill and watch organic flour being produced. In addition, you can shop for mixes, jams, and crafts in the gift shop as well as dine in the Bean Palace Café.
