Pillsbury A Mill

Pillsbury A Mill

The Pillsbury A Mill sits along Saint Anthony Falls on the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. Completed in 1881, it once held the title of largest flour mill in the world for 40 years, though ceased operations in 2003. Due to vibrations of milling machines and poor design, in 1905 the limestone building was fortified and the top two floors were rebuilt. Concrete and rebar reinforced buttresses were poured to help stabilize the building and reinforce the rear wall, and the front of the mill still noticeably slumps in the middle. What’s in store for this historic landmark? The plan is to convert the mill into apartment space for artists.
