Father, please be with each and everyone of us on this earth Lord. Please bless us in these ministries with abundance, and wisdom and courage to carry our abundance out to others that are not so fortunate. Lord I ask that your favor be poured on us like the spring rain. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family, I glorify your holy presence in my life Lord. In Christ name I pray,Amen
I haven't been down there in some time but in Ironton used to be a place called The Depot. They had the best breakfasts there. Take Hwy 21 south of Elephant Rocks and turn right by Fort Davidson. At the first stop sign should be the Fort Davidson restaurant on the left. Turn right at the stop sign and The Depot is about 3 blocks up on the left. It's right across the street from the Fort Davidson museum.
there's a great place to eat not far past Elephant Rock. You keep on heading south on Hwy 21 into Ironton. It's called Bailey Jo's BBQ. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor has these massive cedar picnic tables. The ribs are awesome. Try the Cherry BBQ sauce. MMMMMMMmmmm good.

If you are intrigued by the mystique and lore of simpler times, then relive the days of yesteryear by a visit to Bollinger Mill State Historic Site. The 19th-century mill and its neighboring covered bridge offer a glimpse of now-rare Americana that once might have been expected around many turns in a Missouri road.
The present mill, dating to the Civil War period, is a massive four-story stone and brick building where visitors can still observe corn being ground into meal by water power - just as it was done long ago. The succession of three mills that have stood on this site represent more than 200 years of milling history. The Burfordville Covered Bridge standing alongside stretches its 140-foot span across the Whitewater River, which powers the mill. Begun in 1858, it is the oldest of only four remaining covered bridges in Missouri.
Whether you tour the mill, enjoy an outdoor lunch in the picnic grounds, or laze away an afternoon relaxing in the shadow of these two National Register of Historic Places structures, a visit to Bollinger Mill State Historic Site will be a pleasant reminder of a by-gone era.
The first place I would like to add is Johnson Shut-In's State Park, & the near by Elephant Rocks State Park. The fact is the entire Arcadia area has great motorcycling roads that are scenic with hilly & twisty roads. Both parks also have some very interesting natural sights worth the ride there.
