Summary

Significance: This mill is the most imposing structure on Main Street. Still operative, the mill more than any other building symbolizes the role of Minneapolis as a major U.S. Flour Milling Center from 1880-1930. The Pillsbury "A" Mill was the largest, most advanced mill in the world at the time of its completion in 1881. It was a masterpiece of industrial design from which a standard of all other mills of its time were measured. The production from this mill made Pillsbury the undisputed leader in the flour milling industry.
