Ernest Lawson painted Old Mill at Dallas, Mo. circa 1925-26 while teaching at the Kansas City Art Institute, Kansas City, Missouri. Located several miles south of Kansas City in the small town of Westport, the mill depicted in the subject work was built in the 1830s and supplied flour to wagon trains leaving the area.
