Indian Creek/Greenway Trail
Another area from Greenway Trail in Kansas City, Missouri. This area runs along Indian Creek. A historical sign about the Watts Mill reads as follows below:
The Return of the Millstone
'During the 107 years of its operation (1832-1939) the Fitzhugh/Watts mill used a number of buhrstones for the grinding of corn into cornmeal or wheat into flour. Imported from France, the limestone and silica stones were used in pairs. Eventually they wore down and were replaced with new stones.'
'The discarded milestones took on new lives. One graced the walkway of the Field's family home for many years. The other became the doorstep of the Watt's house, which stood just west of the site. According to historian Bill Crotty, Stubbins and Nancy Katherine Watts were married standing on that stone. Later, their friend and neighbor, fronteirsman Jim Bridger, visited the home many times, probably crossing that threshold at the kitchen door.'
'Old millstones also mark the graves of the Watts family, buried in the Pleasant Valley Cemetary south of Stanley, Kansas.'
'These stones were donated by Stanley Fields III and Jim Gray.'
Eat Here: The Official Meal of North Louisiana
In this video produced by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, get to know Chef Hardette Harris and the Official Meal of North Louisiana. On May 4, 2015, the Louisiana House of Representatives and the President of the State Senate adopted House Concurrent Resolution #88. This resolution made it a matter of public record that things like fried catfish, collard greens, purple hull peas and hot water cornbread make up the Official Meal of the state’s northern half. The menu for the Official Meal was created by Chef Hardette Harris, who is a passionate advocate for the unique foods found in the northern half of Louisiana.
