First let me say what beautiful grounds there are here. It is the perfect setting for a wedding. It is the old Gristmill and you will enjoy the history of it. It is combined with an art gallery now. Then we took the stairwell upstairs and nostalgia set in. For others, I am sure many Elvis records were played and enjoyed while hanging out in that room. Oh and the other best part. Leave a donation. They don't charge you a ticket price. Really, who does that anymore. I love this place. Take your camera.

Nearly every time we've visited Glen Rose we tried to visit Barnard's Mill. Finally this visit we were successful. The sweet lady working there last Saturday took us on a nifty little tour of the building and threw in some personal history (such as her memories of the place when it was the hospital). The art collection is very nice and not stuffy at all. I mean, it includes a sculpture of John Wayne. How can you not appreciate a collector who sees the value in that? We loved this place. The docent gamely climbed all the stairs to the top with us. It's sad to see it falling into disrepair due to recent heavy rains last spring. They have fundraising for adopting a window. Consider contributing to this piece of Glen Rose history.

This was the beginning of Glen Rose. The Barnards' were the founders of the city and lived in and ran this mill. The building is excellent. It is now used as an art museum.

This is a truly historical building and authentic with a great story. They have art on display and give a great tour. The building has been a store, mill, hospital and art museum.
