Last Minneapolis Flour Mill Carries Legacy

Century-old Atkinson Mill survives in a city that once boasted dozens

Flour Mill

One by one, the flour mills that built the “Mill City” a century ago have ground to a halt, leaving one last plant to carry on Minneapolis’ industrial legacy of making food from kernels of wheat.

According to a report at the Star Tribune, the century-old Atkinson Mill will soon be the only flour mill left in a city that once boasted dozens of them.

The last mill alongside the Mississippi River — which powered the industry’s growth — shuttered in 2003, and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) is closing one of two plants on Hiawatha Avenue.
