A View From the Mill City Museum

Minneapolis, MN

The Washburn A Mill was state-of-the-art when it opened its doors in the 1880s. In 1965, the building closed, its facilities deemed obsolete. Then a fire nearly destroyed it in the 1990s but from those ashes rose the Mill City Museum. Wounds healed, walls fortified with loving care. Today, the mill proudly displays its scars, sharing its story with crowds of visitors so they might see beyond the broken exterior.
