Minneapolis is for Milling

Project 365: Day 356

There is a giant flour mill in my neighborhood complete with the milling building, train tracks and cars and sets of giant grain silos. I've overheard out-of-towners talking about how ugly that stretch of Minneapolis is, but I think the mills are very picturesque. I like that some of them are still functioning and I like that they represent a significant part of the history of Minneapolis. Without flour milling this city would not be what it is today. I am grateful to have these larger than life towers as part of my every day landscape.


  1. I can't believe you're almost done with your 365 project! What are you going to do after that?

  2. Beth,
    Good question! I think I will take a break from any sort of structured, obligatory blogging. 365 days is a lot of days!

  3. That is a great pic!! It is good to find importance and beauty in things, especially when it is an important part of history. Congrats with almost finishing the 365 posts, you're almost there!

  4. I am really gonna miss the daily updates! I guess I will have to call you more often! Love, Mom
