Mill City

On this breezy Sunday afternoon the Mississippi River at St. Anthony Falls was high and forceful as we crossed the Mississippi River on the pedestrian bridge to tour the Mill City museum.  The museum is built on the ruins of the Washburn A Mill that exploded in 1878 due to poor ventilation of flour dust within the walls.  Minneapolis was the biggest producer and disbributor of flour in the world.  The stories of harvesters and the millers were fascinating.

I love it that Michelle and Greg wanted us to take their picture in front of the giant Bisquick box!    2014
