Hey folks. I am new to the forum, and new to UE in general [granted I have been in the Carthage underground more times than I can count].

I am planning on heading out to Morrow Mill this weekend to look around. Any tips you guys can give me? Supplies, parking, etc?

Any help would be appreciated.

I was just curious if there were any special precautions I needed to take. Structural integrity of the building, ease of entrance, etc. I have driven by it several times, but have never stopped to look around. [It is only about 5 miles from my house]

I have tried looking up information online, but have not found much. What was the facility actually used for? I know it was a mill, but I am not sure what the time period of operation was, or what they actually milled.

Thanks for the reply, and the information.

Not sure of exactly when built, but was early mid 1800's, started off as Pearl Mill, changed to Morrow in later 1800's. Best I can tell it was active until the early 1970's and mainly used for flour. For a period of time it was actually the highest production will in the state.

Hey cousin -

Thanks for the info. I found a post from a while back talking about Morrow Mill [I think you posted it - if I remember correctly] but none of the pics were intact. I have been enjoying this forum quite a bit. After reading through several threads about Carthage/Joplin, I have found quite a few posts about places that I have explored. I didn't know until just recently that there was a community around exploration.
