Strange things happen around me.
The book mentioned in the opening quote rests upon my shelves, right there, before my eyes. As does Moon’s “Blue Highways”. I lived for a time about three miles from the old mill in the article, and drove by it daily. The Cottonwood river is a pretty body of water flowing as it does through the hills. It has good fishing also.
Cedar Point is about six houses strong, and is about as rustic as it comes. If the project can generate as much income as the old Lindsborg Mill does, Cedar Point has an opportunity.
Inspired by the book, “PrairyErth” by William Least Heat-Moon, Dan Clothier began visiting the Flint Hills on a regular basis several years ago. He was driving from Wichita to Kansas City several times a month to check on one of his projects and taking a detour through the Flint Hills was an enjoyable diversion.
“In my trips back and forth to Kansas City I would try to get lost and succeeded quite a few times,” Clothier said. “That was before global positioning satellites.”
On one of those trips he was coming the long way going north from Cassidy when he came to Cedar Point and saw the old mill on the south side of the Cottonwood River.
