Windows to the Past

The old Washburn A Mill in Minneapolis was built in 1874 along the Mississippi River. In 1878, the mill was destroyed in an explosion.

The mill was later rebuilt and became the largest flour mill in the world until the Pillsbury A Mill was built across the river. (See the Pillsbury A Mill - )

The Washburn A Mill closed in 1965, and was nearly destroyed by fire in 1991. The Mill is now a part of Mill City Museum.
