Wilson's Grist Mill

Wilson's Grist Mill is the centerpiece of Broadhead Memorial Park in Needham, Choctaw County. The mill, named for owner Walter Wilson, was the economic center of the community around the turn of the twentieth century. The park is named for Wilson's wife, Lucy D. Broadhead Wilson, and also features walking trails, picnic facilities, and a restored dogtrot cabin.
