I was able to take a lot of beautiful pics at this historic mill even though it was actually closed the day I was there. I believe it is only open on the weekends.

This historic structure has a fascinating history and many of the rooms now function as an art gallery. In addition to etchings there are works paintings and sculpture of western themes. The sculpture in particular is world class.

The art is from a private collection and well worth seeing. In addition, there was art from students at the local schools and a contest, in which we were asked to... More

Sitting unassumingly on Barnard Street is Barnard's Mill, the "hub" of early Glen Rose commerce. Now it is the showpiece of a nice collection of art, etchings and sculptures - plus a nicely restored area that was the original mill. There is no cost to wander through, but the tour is much more meaningful if there is someone at the... More

The Mill was once a private residence and it has been converted to an art gallery. What a great surprise. A beautiful collection of paintings (some beautiful watercolors), etchings, sculptures, etc. Was not what I was expecting - in a good way. You can walk thru the part of the building that is set up like a home with period... More
