Does anyone know the exact locations of these and if they are viewable with landowner's permission?
The Beck Mill is on Flint Creek near Colcord OK. The last I knew, Sharon Beck owned the property. At one time, Sharon worked for the Talbot Library and Museum in Colcord. They could probably tell you how to get in touch with her. When I visited the mill over two years ago, it was in very bad condition. I assume it is still standing. I took a tour of the mill with a group from the Delaware County Historical Society of Jay OK. Incidentally, the original mill, where Polly Beck was killed, was washed away in a flood. It was a two story structure, several yards from the present structure. The present mill is on the National Register of Historic Sites.
