watermills Flour mill factory museum will tell the story of Minneapolis

The huge Washburn "A" Mill in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota was completed in 1880, and used the power of the Mississippi River to produce enough flour to make millions of loaves per day.

After a fire in 1991, the mill factory became partially ruinous, but after years of work, it is due to open as the Mill City Museum on 13th Sep 2003.
