Milling About

Looking up at a modern 6 story condo building with red colored balconies and porch plants.

Perhaps the future of all industrial areas, once again, belongs to the wealthy. Condos built with bricks from the past house those that live in the next up and coming neighborhood.

Looking up at 4 cylindrical grain elevators that support the yellow Gold Medal Flour sign.

The sun sets on the “best flour in the world” era. The empty grain elevators stand as a monument to the industry that built Minneapolis.

Minneapolis works to preserve its past by incorporating it into current economic enterprises. The widely recognized symbol of Minneapolis, the Gold Medal Flour sign, is framed by the museum it calls home.
