January 21, 2018, Sunday - Pillsbury A Mill Tour

Time: 1:00pm – 2:30pm

Location: A-Mill Artist Lofts, 415 Main Street SE

Pillsbury A Mill Tour

Discover the story of the National Historic Landmark Pillsbury A Mill, the largest flour mill in the world for many years, which recently reopened as the A-Mill Artist Lofts. A Mill City Museum guide will lead a tour of the former milling complex including the rooftop deck and the basement waterpower facilities.

Highlights include the largest and best-preserved waterpower system in Minneapolis, with views straight down a 50-foot drop shaft through a glass floor. Guests will discover how the building functioned during the flour milling era, see the architectural highlights of the recently completed A-Mill Artist Lofts built within the historic mill buildings, and learn about the new hydroelectric plant that helps to power the complex.

The tour includes about 1.5 miles of moderately-paced walking indoors and outdoors with some uneven surfaces. This tour is presented in partnership with A-Mill Artist Lofts.

Future dates: February 3 and 18, March 4
