The 'Old Mill' could use some restoration. It is in Burlington near the river on the North East side of town. There is a map painted on a sign by the Welcome Caboose with local points of interest on it. I followed directions on that sign to find the mill.
Coffey County Fishing Lake is also the cooling lake for the Wolf Creek Generating Station Nuclear Power Plant. The lake was open till fishing but since the events of Sept. 11th it has been closed to the public. I don't know at this time if it will be reopened.
The Wolf Creek Environmental Education Center used to be a farm. That is why this barn is there. It is a place for meetings now. There are old farm machines along some of the trails and the observation tower looks like a grain silo.
Craft Barn Mall has 90 different craft booths inside. My wife and I stop in here some times when we are driving on 75 past New Strawn.
Dam for John Redmond. Here below the dam is a shallow stretch of river where I often see interesting birds.
From top of the observation tower at Wolf Creek Environmental Education area there is a great view. You can see for miles in any direction.
On Summer evenings little children play T-ball in the park near the museum. The boy in blue shirt running for third base is my nephew. I went to watch him play.
Like many towns in Kansas, Burlington was established near a river in order to provide water for the town's future growth.
The Music Box at 404 Neosho is a place to see live musical performances. It is next door to the Caboose and you should be able to find out there what the next show will be.
